Blessing Ceremony in the Era to Open the Gates to the Victory, Liberation and Completion of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind
Heavenly Father, who is the great Lord of all the cosmos, we give sincere thanks that you have permitted us, this day, to hold this ceremony, 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 blessings on these brides and grooms who stand here in holiness with the justification of having become children of the parents of Heaven as representative men and women of representing the 6.5 billion people of the world. And we now attend heaven in this splendid environment with hearts of joy and jubilation. 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 Able-type countries and 193 Cain-type countries, centering on the 6.5 billion people of the world.
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 embodiments 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 as yearned for Adam and Eve to reach their twenties, have come tens of thousands of children to be blessed after thousands of years have passed. So please embrace them with a wide heart and deep and noble affection. Please allow the children blessed in the spirit 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 blessings as husband and wife. Brothers and sisters who have received the Blessing in the past, and the billions of couples in the spirit world and many blessed brothers and sisters in the physical world are all here in this venue 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 of Adam’s family, but this could not be fulfilled and it was lost in Eden. It’s on this 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 that they have been able to be here, to be brought together as brothers and sister and to be dedicated before you as citizens of the one nation. We are truly grateful to you for permitting us to have this opportunity.
These new couples, the good men and women called here by Heaven 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 of people who attend God, come together here, to attend the True Parents, the substantial representatives of the one God whom they have served from the time that they were in their mothers’ womb, through the times of puberty, youth, middle age and old age.
We, also, hope and pray in the name of the True Parents, that our innumerable fellow members… in this place, will support these model couples who have been newly blessed will deeper and loftier and more joyous hearts. We thank you, Aju.
