What We Believe

Cecil O. Samuelson Jr., president of Brigham Young University and a General Authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was given the honor to address members of Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Wednesday.

President Samuelson blessed members of parliament and their families and loved ones. “God honors those who serve with integrity and humility,” he said.

Read President Samuelson's entire remarks below:

I appreciate very much the high honor of this privilege to share my reflections with you this afternoon. At the outset, I confess that I consider myself a “son of Scotland” if somewhat removed. My maternal grandfather, Joseph Mitchell, was born and reared in Dalry, Ayrshire, and I lived in Scotland for two years while serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have returned multiple times. My love and admiration for this nation and its people are deep and abiding.
