Elder Holland must have had some great vaping before stating this.
-When one goes to the holy temple for the first time, he or she may be somewhat awestruck by that experience. Our job is to ensure that the sacred symbols and revealed rituals, the ceremonial clothing and visual presentations, never distract from but rather point toward the Savior, whom we are there to worship. The temple is His house, and He should be uppermost in our minds and hearts—the majestic doctrine of Christ pervading our very being just as it pervades the temple ordinances —from the time we read the inscription over the front door to the very last moment we spend in the building. Amid all the wonder we encounter, we are to see, above all else, the meaning of Jesus in the temple.
Like so many others, I wondered what the heck was going on. It was NOTHING like any church ordinance or ritual. With all the hype about spiritual nirvana, I thought something marvelous was going to occur. Instead I heard a lot of pig Latin at the veil. And their stupid film was an insult to intelligence; it made no sense at all.
