What is the Blessing?

     The Blessing of Marriage refers to the marriage ceremony initiated by Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his wife, Mrs. Hak Ja Han Moon.
The Blessing of Marriage Ceremony is not just a marriage ceremony performed originally by Rev. and Mrs. Moon. Rather, it is a ceremony to return marriage to the original intention stated in the Old Testament, before Adam and Eve, the first ancestors, fell.
    In Genesis 1:28 in the Old Testament, it is written “And God blessed them, and God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth”.

Yet, the first ancestors disobeyed God, and the first family was not blessed, but cursed.  And it seems that today, men and women can’t get along very well. 

The type of character that you have when you enter in to marriage is very important.  Also, the commitment that you make to the marriage itself is crucial.  In the marriage relationship, we truly come to resemble the wholeness of God.  And there is another important element, God’s Blessing.  Our first ancestors marriage started without the Blessing of God, and this tradition has been passed down generation to generation through the lineage.

The Blessing of Marriage Ceremony allows us to return to God’s lineage, and for our children to be born without original sin.

The Four Blessing Pledges

  1. We affirm the eternal true love of husband and wife and we dedicate our marriage to God.
  2. We will not separate, divorce or betray each other.
  3. We will teach our children to be sexually pure until they are married.
  4. We will support God’s ideal of the true family and teach all people to uplift sexual purity before marriage and fidelity within marriage, beyond race, nation and religion.
