France: Ceremony to Bestow the Four Great Holy Items of Cheon Il Guk
By FFWPU Luxembourg
In the 22nd October 2016, we met in the Luxembourg Youth Hostel near the site of the founding castle of Luxembourg for the 1-day seminar and ceremony to Bestow the Four Great Holy Items of Cheon Il Guk and the accompanying Holy Wine Ceremony. The majority of the blessed families in Luxembourg and the neighboring region of Eastern region of France participated.
In the morning, we had two presentations, the first by Alan and Brigitte Sillitoe about the origin and significance of the Holy Items and Special Grace. Then Jean-François Moulinet, sub-regional leader of the West Region, presented the Holy Items of Cheon Il Guk and Our Eternal Life with True Parents.
After lunch, we began with a few Holy songs, a bow, the Family Pledge, an Invocation by the former national leaders, Alex and Anna Martija, an explanation about the holy items of Cheon Il Guk by Alan and Brigitte Sillitoe.
Then, the participants submitted their statements affirming their resolve and we held the holy wine ceremony and bestowed the holy items of Cheon Il Guk to each family. Listening to True Mother’s prayer of Benediction touched deeply our hearts. We concluded with three cheers of Eog Mansei led by Jean-François Moulinet.
After the ceremony, our two African sisters, Seraphine Mboma and Gabrielle Nkiani, entertained us with song and dance (See part of it at this link). (More photos at this link.)
