Following the opening remarks, the participants watched a video screening of True Mother's benediction prayer for the Original Holy Wine, which was provided by Cheon Jeong Gung as follows:
“Respected Heavenly Parent! You had a dream. You created all things in your image and finally created Adam and Eve, as the first man and woman, the first human ancestors, You waited for the day they could fulfil their responsibilities. However, that did not happen. True Parents know the circumstances under which You had no choice but to conduct the difficult course of the history of the providence of restoration through indemnity for the lengthy period of 6,000 years to find your lost children. For the first time in six thousand years, the only begotten daughter, who can complete the providence, was born in the land and the Messiah has returned as promised. The Messiah who can complete Christianity’s providence has returned, but those in the Christian sphere, prepared for True Parents are still unable to unite amidst the providence. However, because we are the True Parents and we understand your situation; we know how long you have waited. In 1960, through the Holly Wedding, True Parents began the works of rebirth and resurrection through the blessing and from this the many blessed families around the world today emerged. Furthermore, after Father’s Holy Ascension, during the seven years of providential course, the only begotten daughter, True Mother, complete the standard of national restoration promised in front of God. Thus, I began the CheonBo (heavenly treasures) works to provide a place for the blessed families in the world that have completed their responsibilities.
Heavenly Parent! How long have you waited and endured? Now you can directly embrace and govern the blessed families who have completed and have registered in CheonBo Won. Thank you Heavenly Parent for providing your protection so the many blessed families that proudly present themselves as citizens of Cheon Il Guk. For this, True Parents offer You their gratitude and the glory. Heavenly Parent! Now through the Holy Wine Ceremony, the children who have fulfilled their responsibilities can become the proud children of Heavenly Parent in the eternal world and of course, the physical world, that Heavenly Parent can embrace, as they stand among the ranks of filial children and loyal patriots. I sincerely thank you for allowing us this opportunity. Heavenly Parent! Thank you for opening the path for these children to go forward the world, going beyond the family and the tribe. They will become the Cheon Il Guk CheonBo citizens. Heavenly Parent! Remember these proud sons and daughters from around the world who are working hard to realize your long-held dream, so that we can quickly arrive at the day on which you can say, “Thank you, all has been accomplished.” Please continues to be with us as we advance toward the day when we can become blessed families registered in CheonBo Won and encourage us. I sincerely and earnestly wish for this and pray and proclaim this in the name of True Parents.”
