Henry Masters Ascended

The Masters are really the spiritual grandparents of Great Britain. Henry spent a lot of time in America with Master Marine, following True Parents' call to action in 1978. Prior to that, the Masters donated their entire family fortune to True Parents in 1974. In this photo, Henry can be seen just over True Father's shoulder during a 1978 visit to the farm. A second photo shows Henry with True Father in the boat-building days.

Ascension of Mrs. Chizuko Abe

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
A great saint and dearly loved elder sister Mrs. Chizuko Abe went to the Heavenly realm. She always will be remembered with affection for her love and devotion to True Parents over a long lifetime of service as sincere and down-to-earth teacher, missionary and mentor.
The Abes served for years as National Messiahs for Israel, where they played a leading role in such providential events as the “Coronation of Jesus” in December of 2003 at the height of the Second Intifada. Before that, Mrs. Abe served with her husband Mr. Masatoshi Abe for many years as National Leaders for the United Kingdom, leaving a lasting impression on a generation of British and European members for her wisdom, insight and counsel.
Due to restrictions of the current situation, a small Seonghwa for Mrs. Abe will be held on coming Sunday, April 5 in Japan. Dr Michael & Fumiko Balcomb would like to encourage each nation and community to include prayers for the Abe family in their online Sunday service.

By Elisabeth Cook
On August 29th, 2019 our brother Martin Deininger went to the Spirit world. He had been diagnosed with cancer in May 2019, after which his health declined rapidly.
Shortly about his life:
He was born on Nov. 17, 1960 in Vienna. From his father he inherited his musical talent, which enabled him to enter the Vienna Music Academy at the age of 14 where he perfected his piano playing. Besides music, he also was a passionate sportsman.
At the age of 16 he joined a Catholic organisation, “Holy Mary’s Legions”. In this environment he came to the decision to become a Catholic priest. That’s why after High school he studied theology in Vienna and in London and was ordained as a priest in1986. He continued his studies in Rome, where he graduated from his post graduate studies with excellence. After that he served as a priest in a small town near Vienna.

Seonghwa Ceremony for our brother Luis Tomas Barriuso
Madrid, Spain, July, 20, 2019

By Maryvonne Jamois
After fighting for almost
two years with cancer, our brother Luis Tomás Barriuso passed away on Saturday 13th of July 2019 in the hospital in Canary Island.
He was born in Canary Island in 1958 and joined in Barcelona on November 1979, was blessed in October 1982 in Korea with a Japanese sister, Machiko Osada. They went back to his hometown in 1992. They thave three children, Clara, Alan blessed with a japonese sister and Daniel. The Seunghwa ceremony took place in Canary island on Tuesday July 16th, as her son Alan arrived on Monday night from Japan where they are now living with his wife. Three brothers went from Madrid Jose Manuel Cabero, his spiritual father, Segundo Marchan, and Pedro Muruzabal. The closest members of his family also participated.
On Saturday July 20th, we organized in Madrid a memorial ceremony where brothers and sisters here could say goodbye and express their gratitude and love to him. After a few words given by our MC Manuel Campillo, and a song together, letters from his wife and three children were read. Those very moving letters brought many to tears. Then we heard some testimonies from three brothers who worked with him, one Japanese sister who had a dream after he passed away and looked very happy, and finally Santi Temprado his spiritual son who came from Barcelona and remembered how Luis Tomás taught him Divine Principle.
Everybody had then the chance to offer a flower and we continue reading True Father´s word about the moment of death from Cheon Song Gyeong. We finished singing Blessing of Glory.
Thank you to our True Parents who brought us the understanding of spiritual life and that through this ceremony we could wish him the best for his new life in the eternal world.

In Memory of Four Mothers who left us in 2018
Torino, Italy, January 27, 2019

By Sergio Coscia

In 2018, four mothers of our community passed away at the end of their lives, spent for the sake of their families and children. Their last months were not easy for these sweet, elderly ladies who had to struggle with the passing of time… Their children are all devoted members and we felt it was really important to honour them, especially because we could not hold their SeongHwa ceremonies at the community level before.  - read more

In Memoriam Eva Slovakova
Nitra, Slovakia, November 18, 2018

By Miroslav Rybár
On November 18, 2018, we said farewell with our dear sister, Eva Slováková, who left for the spiritual world at the age of nearly 74. The funeral took place at the city cemetery in Nitra with the participation of her relatives and acquaintances, as well as our brothers and sisters. Coincidentally, the Seonghwa ceremony took place together with the Roman Catholic ceremony in the chapel at the cemetery. First the Roman Catholic priest made a religious ceremony, and then we performed a Seonghwa ceremony with a song, speeches, prayers and video presentation with photographs from Eva's life. All this was done with the participation of a priest who could thus get to know a lot of unexpected information. - read more
