With the passing of Thomas S. Monson as the 16th President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the next man in seniority becomes his successor. It will be announced soon with the funeral of President Monson taking place today in Salt Lake City.
His successor will be Russell M Nelson. The next President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles is the next man in seniority after President Nelson, Dallin H. Oaks.
I pray for these brethren in light of the usual false nonsense currently spreading about the church on the internet and otherwise.
