(Rev. Skikiewicz speaks as follows:)
Peace, FATHER and MOTHER; (Father and Mother reply, “Peace!”) Peace to Everyone: I thank You, Father, for the invitation that You have invited me and all of us here from Chicago to come to see this beautiful Holy Communion Table and receive this Blessing of Yours. I recognize You more than some of them think they do. They speak that they say they see a m-n but I see GOD in expression in actions and in deeds in that Body; being Holy. And the expressions exemplified are for everyone to take and practice in general living; the justice and honesty!
The Peace Mission Movement is one of the greatest things the world could ever understand. You have said in the Constitution of the United States, Freedom. You have inspired in Abraham Lincoln this, and the Bill of Rights and this expression of liberty to all, and to end all of that segregation. You are causing that word to be expressed and understood by everyone, showing them how to live it and practice it. You have given all of those rights to mankind and You have made Freedom a reality to all in this nation and other nations. You have made Heaven on earth. It is the Work of GOD – only GOD could do it – and they should understand that GOD is doing it and not a man! So I thank You, Father, I thank You, Mother, and I thank you all.Print This Post
