Resolve the Ongoing Problems of Juvenile Promiscuity and Family Breakdown

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2148

In particular, I would like to offer my
deepest gratitude and all glory to God
who has accompanied and protected me
until this day. I have lived my entire life
with the earnest desire to solve the many
difficult problems related to realizing
God’s ideal of creation. I came to realize
that God does not sit on a throne of glory
and honor, but rather is a God of sorrow,
lamentation, and suffering, endeavoring
to save His children who fell into hell
as a result of the Fall. Knowing His will
and heart, I have worked with single-
minded determination in devoting my
entire heart and energy to accomplish
His will, without regard to the time of
day, changes in the seasons, or my cir-
cumstances. Looking back on the eighty
years of my life, I realize I would not be
here with you today were it not for His
help during that time, notwithstanding
being oppressed and persecuted.

Since the vertical and horizontal
indemnity, the indemnity of the eight
stages was completed, last year, on August
31, 1989, I went to Alaska, the northern-
most place in the western world, and
conducted the “Ceremony of the Settle-
ment of the Eight Stages.” It was con-
ducted at the northernmost place. Then
on September 1, I announced the “ideol-
ogy centered on the Heavenly Father.” It
is the ideology of salvation through love,
which we know as the parent-centered
ideology. This ideology urges us to love
everyone. Satan cannot oppose love. If
Satan does not oppose the Unification
Church on its way, it will spread world-
wide in a flash. (199-157, 1990.2.16)

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

We have walked the path of persecu-
tion in the process of our work until now,
but through carrying out these things
under Your guidance and protection,
we have been able to overcome all the
situations and people who have opposed
us – from individuals to families, tribes,
people, nations, the world, and cos-
mos, even up to the realm of Satan and
hell. As we have inherited Your lineage
through Your true love, You protected
us just as parents protect their children
so that the Unification Church was able
to overcome during its difficult course
all the hardships and persecution com-
ing from the fallen world and was able
to surmount individual, family trib-
al, racial, national, global, and cosmic
peaks. Now we are able to hold, in the
name of the True Parents, the Blessing
Ceremony of 360 million Couples repre-
senting all humankind, and are graced
to celebrate with heaven and earth the
liberation that transcends religion, race,
culture, and nationality. For this great
occasion of the Blessing, we are truly,
truly, truly grateful.
In the spirit world, there are Blessing
groups of fifteen billion and fifty billion
parents, brothers and sisters following
on from a first group of twenty billion
spirit people. Here on earth, the 360 mil-
lion couples – in fact more than 400 mil-
lion couples – who are being blessed in
today’s ceremony number more than 800
million individuals. Based on an average
of four family members per household,
the total number of family members
related to these newly Blessed Couples
must be over three billion. All Blessed
Couples in both the spiritual and phys-
ical worlds should strive to resolve the
ongoing problems of juvenile promis-
cuity and family breakdown in order to
save this chaotic world and straighten
out the confused history of humanity.
Through this ceremony, the envi-
ronmental conditions necessary for all
humankind to be able to participate in
the Blessing have been created, and all
people connected to the mainstream
ideal can now belong to You through
attending it. This amazing and incred-
ible miracle has been wrought, not just
by the work of the Unification Church
but also by the joint efforts of Yourself
and the spirit world. Therefore, I hope
and pray that You can forever hold the
victorious dominion and sovereignty of
eternal love and glory gained from this
ceremony, and establish the Kingdom of
Heaven on earth and in the spirit world
through the liberation achieved by this
Blessing. All humankind connected to
the 360 Million Couples can now unite
in heart and strive to achieve the unity of
mind and body, husband and wife, and
within the tribe, race, nation, world, and
cosmos. These couples have been estab-
lished as the nucleus representing the
True Parents on earth and the family in
the garden of Your love. They have been
blessed in order to complete the King-
dom of Heaven on earth with the sov-
ereignty of the love central to the ideal
of creation, which has been Your eternal
I stand before them on this occa-
sion which You have long desired, and
bless them to become Your children who
from this moment can inherit Your will
to build Your kingdom on earth and
in heaven as true individuals by unit-
ing mind and body, husband and wife,
parents and children, and with their
siblings in the blessed world. Please be
with them and bless them as they march
forward to the place of victory and glo-
ry. I pronounce my benediction upon
the 360 million Couples in the name of
the True Parents! Amen! Amen! Amen!
