The Words of the Sun Myung Moon from 2012

Prayer at Sun Myung Moon's Burial

Hyung Jin Moon
September 15, 2012

Gracious Heavenly Father! True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind! We thank You sincerely for granting us this holy day, 7.29 according to heavenly calendar in the third year of Cheon-gi, when we put to rest the holy body of the True Father of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, here, in this holy place, Cheon Jeong Gung.

For ninety years after coming to earth in his physical body, the True Parent of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, the Messiah and Savior of mankind brought liberation and release to You, God. Furthermore, True Father and True Mother formed a substantial trinity with You, which had been Your wish, and established the True Family through their lineal children. Through Your word, Heavenly Father, and the Blessing Ceremony, they have guided fallen humankind along the road to salvation.

Heavenly Father! In the beginning, You created the universe and our human ancestors through Your word; likewise, we all have been born through the teachings of the True Father of heaven, earth and humankind. Now True Father, after fulfilling everything in relation to Your word, has shed his holy body and returned to Your word, the Logos.

True Mother places the first three spades full of earth on True Father's grave.

Throughout his whole life, True Father has been giving Your word, Heavenly Father, in order to save fallen humankind. Now he has become the embodiment of Your word and will move between the spirit and earthly worlds freely, live eternally and carry out Your providence both in the spirit world and on earth.

The day is coming when the God of Day embodied by True Mother on earth and the God of Night embodied by True Father will become one and act as God of both night and day, removing all borders on earth and in heaven.

However today as we attend this Won Jeon Ceremony and have to send away this precious body that we used to see so closely, we feel immense regret and sadness. True Father, we miss your beautiful smile and your graceful gestures as you danced while singing of the universe with a free heart.

Heavenly Father! Now, You, God of Night, will become one with True Father and live with us eternally. This thought gives some comfort to our sad hearts. True Father, you have completed all tasks given to you by God on earth. Then, you have given the key to the door of the earthly Cheon Il Guk to True Mother and to all of us, the blessed families, and departed for heaven 172 days before Foundation Day to also open the gates of Cheon Il Guk there.

Following True Mother, Hyung Jin Nim and Yeon Ah Nim sprinkle soil on True Father's grave. All the True Children present, some with their spouses, then took turns in this symbolic rite of burial.

To fulfill God's will you crossed the thirty-eighth parallel by yourself and then came back to South Korea. Now in the same manner you came to the South, you are leaving for heaven before Foundation Day, but watching your departing figure we will not cry. On that day, the thirteenth day of the first month in 2013, (February 22, 2013 on the Gregorian calendar) the sounds of victory heard on the Foundation Day of Cheon Il Guk will resound throughout heaven and earth.

On that day the God of Night and God of Day will become one and we shall begin a new day of eternal life for a new heaven and a new earth with You.

True Father! May your way to heaven be peaceful. We will serve True Mother with absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience. We will also earnestly work to fulfill our tasks on earth during the time that remains until Foundation Day.

The day that the gates of Cheon Il Guk open, all humankind and all of creation will attend the God of Night and God of Day shouting "Eog mansei" for True Parents. We shall work to bring heaven and earth together.

Loving Heavenly Father! Now we are going to see off the True Father of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, who is coming to Your throne. All this time, the True Father of Heaven, Earth and Humankind has been working so hard, so we believe You will be with him on his way to heaven.

With sincere gratitude, I report to You all these things, in unison with the hearts of all blessed families of the world, in the name of Hyung Jin Moon, a member of a central blessed family.

Aju. Aju. Aju!
