Czech Republic: Peace Blessing
Prepared by FFWPU Czech Republic
On February 10th 2018, we held a Peace Blessing, using the occasion of the National Marriage Week. Over 130 participants attended the event.
Our event started with a 25 minutes long concert, played by our talented members. Dr. Juraj Lajda, the UPF Secretary General, and Mrs. Martine Masner, national leader of the Czech Republic, introduced the meaning of the Peace Blessing to the participants. Mrs. Martine Masner explained also that St. Valentine was a Christian saint that was secretly marrying Roman soldiers, who were actually not allowed to get married.
The Peace Blessing was officiated by our Central Region President Dr. Dieter Schmidt and his wife Ana. 25 new couples received the Peace Blessing with great sincerity and appreciation.
Then, Dieter and Ana Schmidt opened the ball with a beautiful waltz, and the couples, one after another, joined in with a joyful spirit!
Everybody testified that this event was successful and we should repeat it again. With good ideas, cheon-seong and action, we can actually make True Parents’ dream become true!
