Please be seated. It’s very nice to be back in the States, but really it’s not about me. I’m very grateful because over the last couple of days we’ve seen True Parents at their best. Yesterday Father was amazing, wasn’t he? Incredible. One of the moments for me during that speech was when Father was speaking and shedding tears, and all of a sudden he had a nosebleed.
He just keeps pushing himself, at 92. It’s endless. When I saw that nosebleed, it reminded me of the love of Christ, that holy blood that was shed for our sins. It reminded me of his great love for humanity. He talked about it, of course, in his speech: about the tears that were shed, the blood that was shed for Heaven. I was very moved at that moment.
I’ve had the great blessing to be able to go to various countries over the last couple of months, starting from Korea, and then Japan, Hong Kong, and Kenya. We have brothers and sisters all over the world who are sending their love to True Parents.
Today I want to share a couple of words with you before we go into our main practice. That practice is simply: “Cham bu mo nim, og mansei.(참부모님 억 만세).” You all know how to say, “Cham bu mo nim, og mansei.” I want to suggest to you today that “Cham bu mo nim, og mansei” has amazing power because within that phrase is our entire faith: everything from true love to filial piety, to loyalty, to service, humility, gratitude, glory returned to God. Everything is encapsulated in that tiny phrase.
