April 10, 2016 Liberation and Blessing of Ancestors
Rev. Hyung Jin Moon conducted a ceremony for the Liberation and Blessing of 210 generations of ancestors on April 10, 2016 at the Unification Sanctuary, Newfoundland, PA. Twelve hundred families from Korea, Japan, America, Russia, Switzerland, Nigeria, Philippines, Thailand, Brazil and other nations participated in the event.
In accordance with instructions given by True Father to initiate the process of bringing salvation to departed souls, this event is held twice each year. Those who have placed themselves under True Father's authority may request that Hyung Jin Nim, the second King of Cheon Il Guk, liberate and bless their ancestors up to the 210th generation.
Rev. Hyung Jin Moon has explained that all liberations conducted while True Father (Rev. Sun Myung Moon) was alive are considered valid and that those conducted by FFWPU after his father's passing after September 3, 2012 were invalid.
Any second generation or first generation individuals that have partaken of the desecrated holy wine of FFWPU after September 3, 2012 need to receive holy wine under True Father's authority and place themselves under True Father's authority to liberate ancestors.
