The Enthronement Ceremony and the Blessing for Registration
For the first time in 6,000 years, a new heaven and new earth nave opened and a new day has dawned. On the 13th day of the first month by the heavenly calendar (February 22) in 2013, the Foundation Day of Cheon Il Guk was proclaimed. On that day a joyous fanfare praising the glory of heaven and the Blessing on earth resounded at the Cheongshim Peace World Center. The True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind officiated the Enthronement Ceremony of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind in Cheon Il Guk, which could be viewed live from anywhere in the world on the Internet. They completed, concluded and consummated the entire providence of restoration.
The holy vestments and holy crown of True Father, who resides in the spirit world and has realized complete oneness with God, were enshrined. Soon after, True Mother, wearing blue vestments and a holy crown, entered the stage amid celebration in heaven and on earth, escorted by four of her grandchildren, carrying roses and lilies. The heavenly king's scepter symbolizes the power and authority of God and of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, and the Cheon Seong Gyeong and Pyeong Hwa Gyeong, the Holy scriptures of Cheon Il Guk, symbolize rule by the Word. These, along with the Royal Seal, were presented to True Mother. The climax of the ceremony was True Mother proclaiming the Cheon Il Guk symbols and the Cheon Il Guk Foundation Day. Foundation Day holds deep significance as the substantial beginning of Cheon Il Guk, and also marked the beginning of its founding year.
Following the Enthronement Ceremony of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind in Cheon Il Guk, True Parents bestowed the grace of the Blessing, which allows all people in heaven and on earth to register as citizens of Cheon Il Guk. True Mother's sincere prayer and the affirmation of vows constituted resolutions toward completing Cheon Il Guk and a plea invoking God's grace. The Marriage Blessing for Registration in Cheon Il Guk concluded successfully in joyous acclaim, ushering in a new era in which heaven and earth are one.
The Foundation Day celebratory banquet was a precious time to extol the victory of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind and inherit heavenly fortune and heavenly blessing. True Mother awarded a special prize to 1,200 representative blessed families. This prize, which consists of a silken wrapping cloth embossed on every corner with True Father and True Mother's royal seals, embodies True Parents' will and desire for us to share our heavenly fortune and heavenly blessing with all people.
Diverse events were held during the week, mainly in Cheongpyeong, to commemorate the Foundation Day beginning the first year of Cheon Il Guk. Among them were the founding of the Wonmo Pyeongae Foundation and the hosting of a Summit Council for World Peace conference, in which leaders from Korea and around the world, including Unification Church leaders, participated.
At the service marking forty days after True Fathers Holy Ascension, True Mother had granted holy wine to all the regional presidents so that they could distribute it to members around the world, cleansing all past sins and bestowing special grace with which to usher in Foundation Day.
