The Words of the Sun Myung Moon from 2012
Sun Myung Moon March 7, 2012
Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an "official" publication of True Father's words. However, they do provide a good idea of the "spirit" of the message. -- Rev. Katsumi Kambashi
Mrs. McDevitt read Father's speech from the Sermons of the Rev. Moon, titled "Opportunity for Encounter" given on June 20, 1971.
(Holding up Mother's right hand with his left hand) "Those who participated at the inaugural ceremony of Mother as the chairperson of the board of 선문학원 (Sun Moon Educational Institute, an educational foundation), give applause to her. Now, her position has been changed. She is not 어머님, but 어머니. Hyo Yul (Dr. Peter Kim), what do you think of 어머니? Whose mother is she? What is she doing? Each of you (need to be able to say) what mother she is for you."
"I didn't notice this but according to Rev. Hwang, this year is the 40th year since Father started in the education business. Father said, 'yesterday's ceremony is the launching ceremony to make Sun Moon University as the only university in the world which has the vertical value. There are around 10,000 veterans in the world of education in Korea, more than 30 of which participated yesterday.
One of them later called Rev. Hwang, who told him that he usually doesn't drink alcohol but he did this time since he was so happy after having participated at the ceremony. He expressed his great hope for True Parents who gave through the speech a clear vision and the purpose of education centering on God.
When we hear such a testimony from those who know the ins and outs of the educational field in Korea, I believe the ceremony we held yesterday was providentially truly important. (Showing copies of the newspapers) All major newspapers covered the ceremony, in which they expected one of the founders (Mother), becoming the chairperson of the board, would directly run eight schools and universities under 선문학원 (Sun Moon Educational Institute). Quite frankly, I didn't expect such a huge response inside Korea. Yesterday, Father offered his Jeong Seong for the ceremony on the ocean, and right after the ceremony, he came back to the Cheon Jeong Gung by helicopter to welcome her. Father said UPF must also be fully focused on education."
"Did you know that male penguins raise their young, while female penguins leave them looking for food? If they don't come back, the male penguins must do both roles and that's why there is the term 황제 팽귄 (Emperor Penguin)."
"Mothers must educate their children through Hoon Dok Hae, and they must be responsible for their babies in the wombs who can also participate at it."
