The Words of the Song Family
Dear European Blessed Families and Members,
Thank you all for your support for the Cosmic Blessing Ceremony and the Wongu Cain and Abel, Cosmic Harmony Peace Cup Tournament. Your prayers, fasting, bowing and generous donations enabled our European Movement to give support to True Parents who constantly emphasized that all these events were offered to open the gate to the Victory, Liberation and Completion of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind. True Father was especially appreciative that the European Team could again contribute whole-heartedly and win the Wongu Peace Cup.
As you may have heard, True Parents returned to Korea on the 1 day of the leap 3 month in the Heavenly Calendar (21 April). As a result of their special call from the plane in the air 25,000 members gathered in the new Chongshim World Peace Center in Chung Pyung to greet them with just nine hours' notice. True Father challenged them to fulfill their Tribal Messiahship responsibility by bringing their Tribe to study the Original Divine Principle and prepare for the Blessing.
Later True Father called 600 Church Leaders to Cheon Jung Gung and directed them to come to Chung Pyung from 1 May to study the Original Divine Principle (ODP). Throughout May 3,600 should attend the ODP lectures through six consecutive workshops. Then each of them should become ODP lecturers and bring ten more people to study ODP.
Here in Europe we remember how many times during their European Tour in 2011 True Parents directed us to educate 13,000 people in the ODP. Please keep this year's motto and the Lisbon Resolution continuously in your prayers in such a way that prayer translates into concrete actions which than turn the Resolution into substantial results. I pray 12 times a day centering on the Lisbon Resolution and ask you to increase your own seriousness to discover how you can take steps to substantially fulfill your Tribal Messiahship.
To gain spiritual power I suggest that you follow True Parents example and make condition through Hoon Dok Hae. The new Unification Church Europe website gives all of you immediate access to all the Holy Scriptures and encourages you to read True Father's proclamation Speech, the One Hour Divine Principle Lecture and other texts 40, 70 and 120 times. On this foundation of faith: serve, witness, teach and prepare couples for the Blessing. Each of our Blessed Families should have the ambition to support True Parents' victory, liberation and completion by bringing at least three couples to the Foundation Day Cosmic Blessing – that will be your victory!
Our European activity focus is simple – the European Seven Day Workshop and the European Leadership Conferences both held every month. You can keep in touch with dates, invitations and all the news through the new Unification Church Europe Website.
This 40 Day Condition will be the first of seven 40 Day Conditions leading us exactly to Foundation Day 2013. Wishing you a very successful 40 days,
Yong Cheon Song
President Unification Church Europe
