Maagisia sauvoja ruumisarkkujen lankuista:
The rough oak boxes in which the bodies of Joseph and Hyrum were brought from Carthage, were made into canes and other articles. I have a cane made from the plank of one of those boxes, so has brother Brigham and a great many others, and we prize them highly, and esteem them a great blessing. I want to carefully preserve my cane, and when I am done with it here, I shall hand it down to my heir, with instructions to him to do the same. And the day will come when there will be multitudes who will be healed and blessed through the instrumentality of those canes, and the devil cannot overcome those who have them, in consequence of their faith and confidence in the virtues connected with them.Parantavia taikakaluja:
In England, when not in a situation to go, I have blessed my handkerchief, and asked God to sanctify it and fill it with life and power, and sent it to the sick, and hundreds have been healed by it; in like manner I have sent my cane. Dr. Richards used to lay his old black cane on a person's head, and that person has been healed through its instrumentality, by the power of God. I have known Joseph, hundreds of times, send his handkerchief to the sick, and they have been healed. There are persons in this congregation who have been healed by throwing my old cloak on their beds.Hyvin moni syöpäpotilas toivottaisi varmasti tervetulleeksi MAP-kirkon johtajan postittaman nenäliinan, jonka parantavien voimien ansiosta ei tarvitsisi käydä läpi raskaita hoitoja joiden tehokkuus ei aina ole edes taattu. Mikä parasta niin Heberin nenäliina ei ollut edes kertakäyttöinen vaan samalla nenäliinalla parannettiin jopa satoja.
Ovatko taidot ja taikavoimat unohtuneet aikojen saatossa? Onko kirkon johtajan nenäliinan parantava voima kaikonnut vai missä vika? Miksi jokaisessa maailman sairaalassa ei ole MAP-kirkon presidentin siunaamaan nenäliinaa? Ovatko ruumisarkuista tehdyt sauvatkin hukattu vai miksi niitäkään ei enää käytetä?
