This Week in History

This Week in History briefly lists significant events in the history of the Unification Church, the lives of the Founders, and world events that are momentous to Unificationists. Most items are marked according to the solar calendar. Items marked “H.C.” correspond to the Cheon-gi or Heavenly Calendar, which is based on the lunar calendar. This installment covers the week of May 25-31.

Unificationists celebrate eight major Holy Days throughout the year. The first four Holy Days that True Parents (Rev & Mrs Moon) created relate to the order of creation (parents, children, the created things and God). The second four relate to events in Unification Church history (True Parents’ Birthday, the Nation of the Unified Cosmos, Day of God’s Eternal Blessing and the Cosmic Sabbath). The Holy Days involve beautiful traditions through which we commemorate the important victories in the course of restoring this world and humanity. They afford us the opportunity to offer our heartfelt thanks to God and True Parents.

May 29, 2014 marks the 52nd anniversary of the Day of All True Things. This day celebrates all the good things that God created—from creation to the love in our families. On his Day of All True Things speech 35 years ago in 1979, True Father said, “Everything in creation exists for some certain purpose. Do you think they would feel good just being a commodity on the market, even if they were expensive, valuable commodities? Would they feel happy if many men and women came to watch and observe them? Do flowers exist to glorify themselves? Just as you do not see your own face, the petals of these flowers do not see themselves; they exist to serve something besides their own purpose. The flowers impart their fragrance to please someone else who comes to appreciate them.”

Many Unificationists have had pre-Holy Day celebrations this past Sunday. Many more will celebrate this coming Thursday and Sunday. Whether you celebrate at home or with your congregation, we wish everyone a happy Day of All True Things celebration! (Compliments of FamilyFed.org Tparents.org)

Reverend Moon's teachings

The teachings of Reverend Sun Myung Moon

In April 2010, FFWPU Founder, the Reverend Sun Myung Moon (1920-2012) bequeathed his last words for humankind...

"I already have prepared the last words I will give to humankind. These words have been prepared based on my seven triumphs over life-or-death situations, including six periods of unjust imprisonment. I have left behind eight different volumes of books as the textbooks and teaching materials for humankind for all eternity.

"These include over 2,000 volumes of my published and unpublished speeches, Divine Principle (원리강론), Cheon Seong Gyeong (天聖經), Pyeonghwa Shingyeong (the Peace Messages and an assortment of messages from the spirit world), the Family Pledge (가정맹세), True Families: Gateway to Heaven, Owner of Peace and Owner of Lineage and a comparative anthology titled World Scriptures. These textbooks are books that you will have to read and study even after you go to the spirit world. They are not just teachings that come from the mind of one human being: they are the textbooks and teaching materials that teach the heavenly way, which God has granted to His suffering children for their salvation.

"... last year, my memoirs, which contain an honest and candid account of my life, were published, titled As a Peace-Loving Global Citizen. .... I recommend it to you, believing that it will show you about leading life according to true principles....I pray you will carefully read this articulation of true love and find great inspiration." (Read more of Rev Moon's April 1, 2010 speech entitled "The Settlement of the Abel UN and Completion of Cheon Il Guk".)

More English translations of Rev Moon's talks and sermons are available at www.tparents.org. All of the talks and sermons linked to this page are in English. The speaker almost always spoke in Korean, with simultaneous translation. The words on linked pages are based on those simultaneous translations. They are not necessarily accurate translations. Many of the sermons and talks are unofficial notes. Unofficial notes are personal notes, based on the simultaneous translations. Unofficial notes reflect the note taker's interpretation of the translation and should be considered even less accurate than the simultaneous translations.

An article by Dr Andrew Wilson entitled "The Need for a Critical Edition of Reverend Moon's Words " addresses concerns about the translation of Rev Moon's sermons.

Many thanks to Gary Fleisher (tparents.org) and Damian Anderson (unification.net) for providing impressive online libraries from which these materials are sourced.
