    Sealing generally refers to the process of closing or securing an object or space to prevent the passage of matter such as air, water, other fluids, dust, or harmful substances.

  1. Sealing

    Sealing is an ordinance performed in Latter Day Saints temples by a person holding the sealing authority. The purpose of this ordinance is to seal familiar relationships, making possible the existence of family relationships throughout eternity. LDS teachings place great importance on the specific authority required to perform these sealings. Church doctrine teaches that this authority, called the Priesthood, corresponds to that given to Saint Peter in Matthew 16:19. Sealings are typically performed as marriages or as sealing of children to parents. They were performed prior to the death of Joseph Smith, Jr., and are currently performed in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Although some other denominations, such as the Community of Christ, view sealing as an artifact of Smith's practice of plural marriage, some do still perform them.
