The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 65 : January 22, 1903 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 65: January 22, 1903 Another ordinance claiming mention in this connection, though somewhat different from those already cited, is that of naming and blessing infants. In accordance with.the rule of the Church, children born to members of the Church are taken to the monthly fast meetings in the several wards, and are there blessed and named by or under the direction of the bishopric. It is usual on such an occasion for the Bishop to call upon the father of the child, if he be present, and if he be an Elder, in good standing, to take part with the bishopric in the ordinance. This is in every way proper, for the blessing so pronounced is_in the nature of a father's blessing. Record of the ordinance so performed in the ward meeting is made by the ward clerk.
