Interfaith and Peace in Zimbabwe
At the Peace and Family Festival in South Africa on Thursday, November 21, True Mother was welcomed by 300 guests when she arrived in Zimbabwe, and 50,000 more guests at the rally. True Mother was invited by Zimbabwean President, Emmerson Mnangagwa, to visit the Presidential Palace.
At the Africa Summit Opening Ceremony, True Mother focused her message on restoring the world through the Marriage Blessing Ceremony.
“Through receiving the Blessing from True Parents, you must be in the position of fulfilling your responsibilities, in order to become Heavenly Parent’s true children…Nations who have been enemies have united with one heart…through the Blessing. The true family movement is the only shortcut to a world of peace and in particular the basic unit for realizing the kingdom of heaven on earth.”

True Mother’s speech at the Interfaith & Peace Blessing in South Africa was a direct prayer to God, apologizing for all the mishaps humankind has made despite all the hard work God has done, and promising to bring about world peace through the Blessing.
“We give our endless gratitude and praise to Heaven as a new history begins through the ladies and gentlemen receiving the Blessing here today as part of the 43,000 couples…With the grace of the Blessing undoubtedly comes responsibility. This responsibility is not only for oneself, but it is also for one’s neighbors, one’s tribe, one’s nation, and the world. As citizens of Cheon Il Guk who put into practice the true love of living for the sake of others.”
