The Words of the Sun Myung Moon from 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
358 leaders in Korea with a public mission participated at the meeting on that day.
Mrs. McDevitt read Father's speech from the Sermons of the Rev. Moon volume 49, titled "조국이여 밝아오라! / Dawn Bright Our Fatherland!" which was given on October 9, 1971.
"What was the title of my speech? ('Dawn Bright Our Fatherland!') It means that even if I don't wake it up, the time will come when the fatherland dawns bright. It means that even if I don't prepare for that, the dawn of the fatherland will come. The person who is here has already lived for 93 years. The time has already passed when I can say 'Dawn bright our fatherland!' In order to conclude God's providence by indemnifying the failure of Adam's family and seeking for what Jesus missed, I had to be determined to restore those by myself and started my course pledging to have the dawn of it in my lifetime without fail. We have to establish the third fatherland. You have the providential mission of going all out for it even by sacrificing the whole, and you, as the owner, have to be determined that you indemnify the mistakes of the past."
"I came back here from Las Vegas and said '조국 광복 / 祖國 光復 / Restoration of (the independence of) the fatherland'. How miserable it is to have said such words. How many thousands of years have passed for '광복 / restoration (of the independence)'? Many years have passed. Many years. It is a huge problem that nobody knows clearly about the restoration of the fatherland."
"What you can be proud of as a Unification Church member is that I have provided eight text books and teaching materials."
"What I am talking about now is 참부모님 정착 (Firm Settlement of True Parents), not 참부모님 안착 (Safe Landing of True Parents)."
"There is the Cheon Jeong Gung in Chung Pyung, which by itself, brightens the fatherland. So the process of the dawn of the fatherland has already passed because we see, live and move in there. Therefore we can't say that we must try to have the dawn of the fatherland again. Cheon Jeong Gung itself has appeared like the lighthouse that symbolizes the victorious hegemony, which nobody in the world can deny. (This place won't disappear) even if someone explodes it. I will establish the ideal of the Cheon Jeong Gung in my hometown as well, which is the house of 80 million people (in the Korean peninsula.). This is my conclusion. Is that true or false? (To Mother) If you think that is true, raise your hand. (Mother raised her right hand) Applaud her. (Applause)"
"Am I a person whom you know well or you don't know well? ('Person whom we know well.') How do you know me well? Centering on tradition one should have the same blood lineage. They shouldn't be separate but must be one. Then children can't help but follow their parents becoming filial children and forming their families through the Blessing.
"After the firm settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind (천지인참부모 정착), what will happen? It is the proclamation of the Substantial Word of God (실체말씀선포). It wouldn't be necessary to leave to you the Substantial Word of God. Because everything has been done in perfecting the family of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind. Then comes the 'Cosmic Assembly (천주대회).' This doesn't mean that I tell you to do it. The cosmic assembly has already been done. The firm settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind has been done, the proclamation of the Substantial Word of God has been accomplished, and we went beyond the cosmic perfection."
"The number of people who were born on earth and have gone on to the spirit world as of now is 7.2 billion couples.
(Katsumi: I think the number Father mentions here is the current population of the world.)
But in my eyes, there is nobody. Have they lived with (True) parents? They couldn't. Have they worked together with (True) parents? They couldn't.
(Katsumi: I think what Father wants to say here from the heartistic viewpoint is that for Father, even if they are on earth it is like they do not exist.)
Can they, who couldn't work and live with the parents, be qualified t o participate at their wedding celebration? There wouldn't be even one person."
