Recent Speeches 37: True Mother’s Blessing Prayer in São Tomé and Príncipe
Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, affectionately known as True Mother, gave the Blessing prayer at the 2019 Hyojeong True Family Festival Blessing Ceremony in São Tomé and Príncipe on September 6, 2019.
Most high and noble Heavenly Parent!
How long have You waited and what have You endured for this one day! Based on the ideal You envisioned at the time of the Creation, You wanted to embrace, love and live with humanity as Your children. But because Adam and Eve, who were to become humanity’s ancestors, fell, You ended up waiting for the long period of 6,000 years, constantly worrying as you hoped for the day You could embrace your beloved sons and daughters once again.
The ideal creation You envisioned was to last for eternity, but because the victorious True Parents had to emerge from amidst fallen humanity for Your ideal to be achieved, how many different difficulties You had to take on and endure!
Heavenly Parent! About 600 or so new couples are receiving the Blessing today. At this very moment, they are resolving to create true families and to achieve the original ideal You had envisioned that Your children would become in accordance with Your Will. For the past 50 years or so, True Parents have raised many blessed families around the world. Now many blessed families who want to attend and live with You, our Creator and Heavenly Parent, are being born in all countries across the world.
Please enable the 600 couples receiving the Blessing today to realize that they are blessed families who are to lead this nation, though a small nation, toward becoming a Heavenly São Tomé that lives with You, Heavenly Parent. Through living by the principle of living for the sake of others, centered on true love, this nation can become a nation You can embrace, a nation You want to love and bless. As a nation that also can set the example for the entire African continent of a nation that attends and lives with You, please remember all Your sons and daughters receiving the Blessing today.
I sincerely pray that You will guide all couples here to lead lives You can remember and feel proud of after this Blessing. I bless and proclaim all these in True Parents’ name. Aju!
