Priesthood Keys

Joseph Fielding Smith, In Conference Report, April 1967, 98
"There is a difference between receiving an office in the priesthood and in receiving the keys of the priesthood. This we should clearly understand. …
… While all men hold the priesthood who are ordained to any office, yet there are special, or directing, authorities, bestowed upon those who are called to preside. These authorities are called keys."
