Towards the end of his talk, he says:
"The Lord taught...that priesthood means reaching out to serve others."
Thomas S. Monson is quoting, saying:
"The priesthood is not really so much a gift as it is a commission to serve, a privilege to lift, and an opportunity to bless the lives of others."
Many people criticize the church for not allowing women to hold the priesthood, as if the priesthood was a source of dominance in the men.
Joseph Smith the Prophet said it perfectly in Doctrine and Covenants 121:41:
"No power or influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the priesthood, only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned."
A man cannot use his priesthood to bless himself, but only to bless others.
I have been blessed by the power of the priesthood before in many ways. I know it is God's power given to man on earth.
