And they died for their beliefs, and with their deaths came the dark centuries of apostasy. “The most precious thing lost in the Apostasy was the authority held by the Twelve—the priesthood keys. For the Church to be His Church, there must be a Quorum of the Twelve who hold the keys and confer them on others”(“The Twelve,”EnsignorLiahona, May 2008, 84).
