Hoon Dok Hwe with True Parents on April 16th 2010
Unofficial Hoon Dok Hwe Notes, Friday, April 16th, 2010, Cheon Jeong Gung, Cheong Pyeong, Korea
1st Year, 3rd Month, 3rd Day of the Heavenly Calendar (clear skies)
120 core members from the Gyeonggi South Province church attended Hoon Dok Hwe at Cheon Jeong Gung. After True Father entered the Hoondok Hall at 5 a.m. and received a greeting from the participants, he said that we must give the Blessing to people who were unable to marry at a young age and are living alone, and continued speaking about various topics.
Summary of True Father’s Words
You should go to Christian churches and hold Hoon Dok Hwe there. Because you have given out Father’s autobiography, you must now do this.
What are we reading today? [Wonju McDevitt: Today we will read page 32 of the fifth volume of True Father’s speeches.]
In the future, we need to educate the Christian churches and the religious realm. The religious realm is not united; even Christianity is divided into factions that fight one another. They cannot go to Heaven that way. There are no denominations in the Unification Church.
(Divided into denominations,) there can be no Seunghwa Ceremony. Nations should hold mass Seunghwa Ceremonies for people who died as teenagers. We should not hold Seunghwa Ceremonies every day. Blessing Ceremonies should also be held in mass; once a day is decided, people should be able to receive the Blessing on that day no matter where they live. That is how we will be supraracial and supranational.
Gyocha marriages were held one at a time but exchange marriages are to be held for groups of people, for example, the Moon clan, the Park clan, Russia, China, etc. America and Russia, or America and China should hold (mass) exchange marriages. If close to 300 million citizens of a nation participate in exchange marriages, that would be 600 million (including their spouses), and if each of them were to connect five more people, that would be 3 billion people. That is how they can go to Heaven and become citizens of Heavenly Kingdom.
