President Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the St. Louis Missouri Temple on June 1, 1997. During the dedicatory prayer President Hinckley stated, “We are reminded that this temple stands on the soil of the state of Missouri where the Prophet [Joseph Smith] and his associates suffered so much, and were finally banished by a cruel and illegal order of extermination. Terrible were their losses, terrible their suffering. We are grateful that the extermination order has been revoked and the persecution is long since gone. Today Thy Church basks in the sunlight of good will.”
