Inside back cover: The Light of the World, by Mirta Veiga Richards, oil on panel, 42″ x 60″, 1993. Courtesy of the Museum of Church History and Art. In the Sermon on the Mount, the Savior told his followers: “Ye are the light of the world. … Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matt. 5:14, 16). Latter-day Saints throughout the world fulfill this injunction as they take part in priesthood ordinances, share the gospel with others, and live Christlike lives.
