Church Holy Days and Historical Ceremonies

(True God's Day)



At three o'clock in the morning of January 1, 1968, at the old Headquarters Church, Reverend Moon established God's Day, declaring that it was created to allow God to work freely.

"January 1 of 1968 was a day of joy unprecedented in history. It was the day when Adam and Eve were united into one centered on God's love, as God had longed to see on earth. We have to know that this day is God's Day. No matter how much the world, members of established churches, ministers, the Pope, or whoever, may rise against it, this day was the first day of glory and joy for God in history since the creation of the world.

God's Day means that people are in the sphere of God's direct dominion. Parents' day signifies fallen parents rising up to the position before the fall. We have established not only God's Day and Parents' Day, but also Children's Day and the Day of All Things."
