The Impact of True Mother’s Message at the Garden
In the following testimonies, two Unificationists convey the impact of True Mother’s message at Madison Square Garden.
True Mother’s words were greatly appreciated and liberating. Her message and presence encouraged me as a mother and grandmother to trust in the power that dwells in me.
I returned on the bus with Pastor Sagisaka of Chicago Family Church. Filled in the spirit of joy, the urgency of your historical message reminded me of the “Freedom Riders” movement in the 1960’s. Sharing my Emancipation Proclamation message with those present, I felt that we too were on a mission to be Riders for Peace and building Family in America today. Many heard True Mother’s message. Some will remember it and share. Then, there are those, like myself, who will place it in our hearts, live and create a culture of peace in our family and community, as best we can. To me, True Parents are the Living word of God in America.
True Mother’s presence has increased my hope for America and encouraged a greater expectation.

“In the speech, True Mother proclaimed herself as the “only begotten daughter of God.” Every time True Mother proclaims that she is the “only begotten daughter of God”, my understanding is that as True Father, the only begotten son is no longer with us here on earth, True Mother is reassuring God, telling Him, “your only begotten daughter is here. Don’t worry, I am in charge and will take care of your sons and daughters and your will.”
She is also proclaiming to being the “only begotten daughter of God” in front of humankind with absolute faith and absolute confidence with heaven and earth as witnesses. Therefore, no one can no longer say, “We did not know.” Even Satan needs to hear it; he is a witness too. My deepest prayer and hope is that soon an influential individual will stand before the world and proclaim over and over that our True Mother is the “only begotten daughter of God.” Then, she will no longer have to do it for herself.
