People of filial piety will think of
their parents first when something good
happens in their lives. In the fallen world
people think of their spouse first when
they see something good. However,
unless you buy something precious for
your parents first, you cannot buy some-
thing for your spouse.

These eight months of January
through August have all been part of
a new era in 1989. It is now the end
of August isn’t it? The course of glob-
al indemnity has been completed in
these eight months. In connection with
this we were able to hold many events
last year, including the cross-cultural
“exchange” Holy Blessing and the dec-
laration of the Foundation Day for the
Nation of the Unified World. Thus, all
conditions of indemnity were fulfilled.
In this way, everything was brought to
completion in August. This includes
the marine and water related activities.
I have accomplished so much up to this
point. (193-100, 1989.8.31)
The Ceremony of the Settlement of
the Eight Stages signifies the restoration
of the right of the eldest son. It was held
after both the vertical historical course
and the horizontal course of indemni-
ty on the levels of the individual, fam-
ily, people, nation and world – in short,
the vertical and horizontal courses of
indemnity in the eight stages – had
been completed. It signifies the comple-
tion of the course of indemnity for all
people of the world. All this comes to
fruition through the Ceremony of the
Settlement of the Eight Stages.
We have entered an era when we
can come together in harmony through
love with no need for indemnification
because, after the restoration of the
right of the eldest son, it is embraced
in the bosom of the parents. War and
struggle to restore the right of the
eldest son are no longer necessary in
the realm of parental love. In order to
initiate this, the Ceremony of the Settle-
ment of the Eight Stages must be per-
formed. Through this ceremony, the
children in the positions of the first and
second sons can be forgiven by those in
the position of the parents, and we can
enter the next era of forgiveness of par-
ents. (193-173, 1989.10.3)
Richard: Rev. Sun Myung Moon has already set the foundation for us so we can progress towards God’s Ideal without the need for war and struggle.
The Person Who Will Serve the Grieving Father

We say we love God. God has loved humanity for six thousand years. The greatest sadness is that which is felt by a loving heart; the greatest pain is that which is felt by a loving heart. The greatest happiness is that which is felt by a loving heart.
We say that Heavenly Father is love, but has He ever felt happiness? No. We have to understand that in dealing with fallen humanity and in loving humankind, Heavenly Father has never seen a day of happiness. We thought that God was the God of love and that He was always enraptured in joy, happiness and peace, but that is not so. Humanity today has to realize this. No one on earth understands that the greater God’s desire to save humankind, the greater the pain in His heart, since He possesses a heart of love. No one understands the pain of Heaven deep within that heart of love.
Humankind knows that God is love and that He is the subject of love. Humankind does not know the heart behind the bloody history which God has suffered for humankind.
