Cosmic Blessing Ceremony Invocation
Sun Myung Moon
October 14, 2009
Sun Moon University, Asan, Korea
Father God who is the great Lord of all the cosmos, we give sincere thanks that You have permitted us, this day, to hold this ceremony marking the 10.14 Cosmic Blessing. As Heaven has specially permitted us today to perform acts of goodness in the midst of such a wonderful environment, we beseech that You will grant Your blessing on these brides and grooms who stand here in holiness with the justification of having become children of the parents in heaven, as representative men and representative women representing the 6.5 billion people of the world, and who now attend Heaven in this splendid environment with hearts of joy and jubilation.
How You have longed to see such good men and women!
We give sincere thanks, Father, that You have allowed the grace of being able to inherit the lineage of the holy blessing, whereby we are born again in accordance with a relationship of flesh and blood with the True Parents, in 194 Abel-type countries and 193 Cain-type countries centering on the 6.5 billion people of the world, here on the campus of Sun Moon University in Asan, the Republic of Korea, on ground prepared beforehand by Heaven with great effort and representing the temples of education that nourish all people so they may be offered to Heaven, and where we can remember the campuses in our own country where we were educated.
We are truly grateful that You have permitted us to have this day to commemorate this solemn occasion in the presence of all nations, all creation and the entire cosmos, where True Parents, the substantial embodiment of the fruits representing the king of the kings of all nations and the numerous kings in history, have become one with God, in the name of True Parents.
After the time of the Creation, our Heavenly Father, You dreamed of the model parents of all peoples and waited for the day of the blessing. Yet You could not bless Adam and Eve, and instead You lost them. Since then, You have had to endure for tens of thousands of years until this day, on which are present tens of thousands of couples who have been called here after undergoing suffering and difficulty to inherit the realm of heart under Your lineage. So Father, please welcome these brides and grooms into Your heart with open arms.
In the presence of Your heart, which had yearned for Adam and Eve to reach their twenties, have come tens of thousands of children to be blessed in this plaza in Korea, after thousands of years have passed, so please embrace them with a wide heart and deep and noble affection, and please allow the children, blessed in the spiritual world and the physical world centering on true love, to inherit the bloodline of true love through the love of God and True Parents and receive the blessing as husband and wife.
The brothers and sisters who have received the blessing in the past, and the billions of couples in the spiritual world and many blessed brothers and sisters in the physical world are all here in this plaza to congratulate the couples, so please look upon them with favor and let Your heart, which was closed, and which has yearned for this for generations, open in joy.
It was the wish of Heaven to form the one family, Adam’s, but this could not be fulfilled and it was lost in Eden. This commemorative day, October 14, is the joyous day on which we can go beyond that and bless these sons and daughters brought together in tens of thousands of couples, as the flowers of high, wide and deep true love, so Father we hope and pray that You will bless this day more than any day ever before.
Thanks to the joint efforts of parents, brothers and sisters, teachers in the schools of many nations, and religious leaders on the foundation of religion who have nurtured and raised these children, they have been able to be here, to be brought together as brothers and sisters, and to be dedicated before You as citizens of the one nation. We are truly grateful to You for permitting us this opportunity.
These new couples, the good men and women called here by Heaven and blessed together, are the new fruits representing billions of blessed couples. They are the newly harvested seeds in front of the brothers and sisters who have received the blessing before them, so please receive them as the proud brides and grooms of heaven and earth.
Heavenly Father, please look down upon this joyous arena with pleasure as the spiritual and physical worlds, the people that attend God, come together here to attend True Parents, the substantial representatives of the one God whom they have served from the time they were in their mothers’ wombs through the times of puberty, youth, middle age and old age. We also hope and pray in the name of True Parents that our innumerable fellow members in the kingdom of heaven, looking down at this plaza, will support these model couples who have been newly blessed with deeper, broader, loftier and more joyous hearts.
Please receive glory from us, and allow us to praise You more and more! Thank You, thank You, thank You! Aju! [Aju!]
