For True Love, Fidelity and Unity
Camberg, Neumühle, February 17, 2018

Even as recently as the beginning of January, this World Peace Blessing seemed 'something impossible '. Only one couple (from the whole area of Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Giessen and Bonn) appeared at that time prepared to be blessed. But the date had been fixed and announced - there was no going back!   - read more  - view more pictures

Heavenly Parent's Day Celebration
"Let's determine to live every moment with joy!"
Torino, Italy, February 16, 2018

By Sergio Coscia
This year, we decided to celebrate Heavenly Parent's Day not one, but three times! The first time, by welcoming the 1st day of the new Heavenly Calendar (based on the lunar calendar) with a prayer at home, on February 16th. The second time, on the same day, in the evening: several families could hold a special service, with prayer and meditation; we read together the Family Pledge (both in Korean and in Italian). - read more

By Franco Ravaglioli
On Sunday February 18, 2018, the community of Bergamo met in the polyvalent / auditorium theater of Orio al Serio (Bergamo) to celebrate the 51st Day of the Celestial Parent, the coronation ceremony of the Kingship of God, the birthday of the True Parents.
The celebration began at 10:30, with the Pledge of Families followed by some songs offered by the True Voices choir that prepared the spiritual atmosphere for what it was then the central message offered by the Pastor of the community of Bergamo, Adosco Comito, on the meaning of the three festivities.
At the end of the morning meeting three Mansei were offered: for the Celestial Parent, for the True Parents and for the victory of the sixth year of Cheon Il Guk.
After lunch shared with the community, we met again inside the theater to attend the scheduled entertainment planned for the afternoon. The Stereotipi musical band was the first to performe, they proposed live music; then the ASD Orientalya dance group performed several oriental and hawayan dances and this ended the celebration day.

World Interfaith Harmony Week and World Peace Blessing
Vienna, Austria, February 11, 2018

On Sunday, February 11, 2018 the Austrian Family Federation, UPF and Womens Federation had an event commemorating the World Interfaith Harmony Week, which concluded with a World Peace Blessing. In preparation of the event I contacted the Austrian Thai community by visiting the responsible monk in his temple in Vienna. I got this inspiration through the successful cooperation between a Thai monk in Sweden and the Swedish National leader of the Unification Movement. The Thai monk from Sweden contacted the Austrian monk and informed him about our plans to organize an event. That's how I could receive the support of the Austrian Thai community. - read more
