Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an "official" publication of True Father's words. However, they do provide a good idea of the "spirit" of the message. -- Rev. Katsumi Kambashi

Mrs. McDevitt read Father's speech titled "Mission of Unificationists" from his speech book #41.


"Yesterday, how many fish did you catch? ('We got two carp and 20 striped bass.') What did you do with them? Did you cook, share and eat them, or what did you do with them? You said you were preparing for the Little Angels' performance, and where did all the fish go?


'You have them all, do you?' ('Yes.')


Those who reduce the number (of the fish) are 패망자 (敗亡者/ losers), and those who are able to add more by their own efforts are 흥진자 (興進者 those who prosper). There will be a problem if one takes some to eat without my notice and reduce the number."

"You must develop a fishing method.

Have you prepared well for the guests (for the Little Angels)? Who is in charge of finance? Who is in charge? You would say, 'It will be OK.' Such words mean nothing and you should have an economic foundation. There is nobody who prepared that. I can't send the guests with empty hands, and without such a foundation, it would be worse to invite people. Who takes the responsibility?

Mother said with a smile:

'They said they received the money from you.'

Chang Shik Yang:

'When we made a pamphlet for their performance in 22 countries, we put the words that without True Parents' financial help this couldn't take place, and so all people appreciate it.'


Nobody likes people who just eat at the feast, sleep and defecate. We should deeply implant the root and have manure for that but we don't have such a national background. You say 태평성대 (Reign of Tranquility and Prosperity) but you should know I am living while not being able to die. You should know that the gift which can remain in the future won't go to your country and your descendants but go to the other place. Korea is the fatherland, the homeland of faith, but it will disappear.

What would you do if I am able to take the position of saying 'I won't be a Korean'? A flood is more scary than a drought. When you are seeding and if you have the flood, what would happen? All the seeds would be gone.

Fixing the victorious flag in town and observing the tradition of the Day of Victory of Love, the first title of being able to commemorate 애승의 조상 (ancestors of Victory of Love) was 애승일 가족 축복가정, but everybody was gone within months. Who made that happen? How could it happen? You couldn't answer for the aftermath. I gave something bigger, and they were all gone.

Once people in the spirit world resurrect through earthy people, there is no way for them to go back to the spirit world. In order for them to go back, they must have the gifts they harvested on earth. I think of such thing. The days when we had gorgeous banquets becomes the seeds of the history, and must grow bigger."

(Katsumi: I remember Father once said that what the people in the spirit world can do is nothing but participating at our assemblies and banquets.)

"Do you love my sermon books? Do you love them that I love who have been leading the teaching of Cheon Il Guk? If you don't, there is no place for you to stand."

"After the performance (in the western part of the US), where will the Little Angels go? What is their position where they go back and can be welcomed in Korea?"

"You must feel more scary in order to observe scary days. You have to work harder than I do, who you attend to, so that the root, trunk, and branches can live and sing songs in all four seasons. But those who don't like seeing me and hope I am not here will perish. You don't have the ignition of the earnest heart by putting my words on the wall, praying with tears everyday and seeking for the time when the God of Night and the God of Day are liberated.

Even if I receive a lots of reports from you, they don't ignite my heart. Where shall I go? To who do I give notice that there is the fact that I must go to the place where I don't have to meet people? I can't do it to Mother and you, and I have to be worried that the position where Heaven can stand will be gone.

Israel, which tried to dominate Rome, came to perish. What would be the conclusion of the Unification church after having done feasts with which it could dominate heaven and earth? The God of Night, the God of Day, True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind, or Korean National Rally to Support the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, are all unnecessary. Do you have ignited an earnest heart in you? You always hope for something good for yourself."

"What is the name of the baby (of Kook Jin Nim)? ('Shin Pyeon Nim')

(Katsumi:.Shin / / means 'God,' and Pyeon / / 便 means 'side' or 'convenience.')

The name signifies 'convenience for God's side.' But it could be Shin Hwa,

(Katsumi: Hwa / / here means 'disaster')

Shin Hae

(Katsumi: Hae / / means 'damage.')

and Shin Mang

(Katsumi: Mang / / means ' to perish.')

Yesterday, he greeted me putting down his head and wanted me to do the same to him. At his age, he already asked me to greet him.

Where is 'God's side' for me? I can't see the flag. I think what I was talking about now is after the fair. When I am gone to the spirit world, what would remain? Right after the day Jesus died, everything was gone. What Jesus did for 40 days after he came back (to his disciples) is extended for 400 years and 4000 years.

There is no hope with your spouses and children. Why don't you come here bringing your sons and daughters?"
