True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind's Blessing Ceremony for Heavenly Africa and True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind's Prayer for Africa's Liberation
January 19, 2018, House of Slaves, Gorée Island
Almighty Heavenly Parent, until now Heaven has gone through so much pain and suffering to restore fallen humankind, but you had to absolutely complete the ideal of creation.
Heavenly Parent! How many long days have passed as you worked hard and took a sorrowful course to find your son and daughter? We know of the history that has pained Heaven many times because of humankind's ignorance.
Heavenly Parent! Nevertheless, you never gave up on us. Thus, you were able to find the victorious True Parents, for whom you had wished for so long. When all the people of the world are reborn through the True Parents, there will be such happiness and delight on that day.
Heavenly Parent! The True Parents, True Mother, the only daughter of God, has come here today. You sent Jesus to complete Heaven's providence. You embraced those who made it so that Jesus had no choice but to be crucified. Jesus prophesied that he would return and Christianity began through the Pentecost. Yet Christianity did not know your deep will or Jesus' essence and they left a sorrowful history here in Africa and on Gorée Island. Where did Jesus' words of "Love your neighbor as yourself" go? The missionaries who came as Christians forgot this essence when they came to Africa. How could they treat people in this way because of differences in skin color? Please remember the people of Africa who have endured and waited for more than five hundred sorrowful years.
Beloved Heavenly Parent! Today in the name of True Parents, I liberate the sorrowful spirits of Gorée Island and through a spiritual workshop conducted by Heavenly Parent, they can be resurrected as good spirits and return to earth and be with their descendants so that Africa can become an Africa that can realize the dream of one human family centered on Heavenly Parent and become the light and lamp of the world. Let us cooperate enthusiastically to achieve a world of no more conflict, suffering, or war―one world of complete harmony and unification centered on Heavenly Parent. I liberate and proclaim this in in the name of True Parents. Aju!
