Translation: Katsumi Kambashi
Rev. Yang read Father’s speech from the Sermons of the Rev. Moon, titled “Era of Activities on World Stage,” given in November, 1972.
“One can’t know about the Unification Church just by seeing its activities. Our goal in life lies in the salvation of the nation, the world and the people who have hardships and are poor.”
“You have to pray more than the time when I am in Korea. When I leave Korea, you feel empty, don’t you? So do I. during this period, you should pray centering on my family and the church. — – You need to understand that the time has come when our mission can reach a maximum level (우리의 사명이 절정에 긍할 수 있는 때).
When you joined the church in 60’s, you didn’t know anything staying in the object position of being educated. But now in the position of being responsible, holding a more serious heart than you had when you happily joined the church, you must represent the nation and always think of how you can give an advantage to heavenly path you take even by risking your life (사생결단을 내서라도).
You must know that this is the issue that each individual needs to think of. In that sense, you should pray a lot and offer Jeong Seong. During this time, you should double our membership until I come back.”
(Katsumi: I think Father spoke to the Korean leaders such as Rev. Yang Hur and Rev. Man Oong Jo who had come from Korea with True Parents this time, and of course these words are meant for all of us too.)
