THE NEED FOR TRUE PARENTS
[True Parents] fight against Satan’s world and attain dominion over all things. They destroy Satan, who governs the human world, and they attain an absolute position from which they govern even the myriads in the spirit world.
CSG Book 2, Chapter 1, Section 1, Verse 17
Then how can we fulfill our desire to resolve these accumulated problems all at once? It requires a true standard.

TRUE PARENTS & US
What is the hope that we should nurture?

PERSONAL TESTIMONY OF THE TRUE PARENTS
You may not know how much I have invested for the sake of the world. How many tears have I shed, how much sweat and blood have I spilled, and how many times have I sighed?
