“Patriarchal Blessings Online,” Ensign, May 2016, 140
New online tools will enable members to have easier access to patriarchal blessings. Members can request a copy of their patriarchal blessing in digital form and request a copy of blessings from deceased ancestors (received via mail or email). Priesthood leaders can submit online recommendations for blessings, and patriarchs can view recommendations for blessings and submit digital text of blessings after the blessings are given.
These tools are now available to more than 50 percent of the Church’s stakes, in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. By next year they should be available in 14 languages and to all stakes.
