Rev. Leo Angelo Halog, Philippine National Leader, shared a special reflection expressing his deepest gratitude and warmest congratulations to True Mother for the overwhelming victories for Heavenly Parent. He emphasized the urgent need to unite completely with True Mother and to follow absolutely with absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience.
He conveyed True Mother’s words saying, “We have to fulfill our responsibilities. It is our duty, our mission to let all the people know that Heavenly Parent is our Parent. We have to live each and every day of our lives striving to bring joy and solace to Heavenly Parent. We have to engrave this unto our bones. We shouldn’t stop at receiving the blessing but we have to share the blessing to all people. Also, True Mother mentioned that if we let the one-third of the world population know and attend Heavenly Parent, then, we can establish substantial Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.”
He then encouraged everyone to have a renewed heart and to make greater resolve and determination to bring victory for the realization of a Heavenly Unified Korea and a Heavenly Unified world, to take advantage of the tremendous foundation that True Parents have laid and the victories that True Mother have accomplished and restore our nation by 2027 and contribute to the establishment of a Heavenly unified world. He urged everyone to make a great offering as we welcome 2021 by bringing victory to our Rally of Hope Philippines and to give hope to our Heavenly Parent and to our beloved True Father and True Mother. After which, he offered a closing prayer.
The service concluded with a unison prayer.
