The "Holy Blessing for Returning to True Father's Authority" ceremony on August 30, 2015 marked the third anniversary of True Father, Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s Seonghwa memorial in 2012.
All "blessing ceremonies" held by the Family Federation during the intervening period were not performed in unity with True Father’s Blessing Covenant. Feb. 22, 2013, which the Family Federation celebrates as "Foundation Day" was a day when Hak Ja Han disunited with True Father by abandoning the Blessing Covenant that he sacrificed for and purchased with his own blood. The blessing offered that day was not performed in unity with Father, or with his three times crowned heir and "representative body," Hyung Jin Nim.

For that reason, the blessing given that day did not bring any of the couples into the new lineage established by Father. In effect, the Blessed Central Families who participated in that blessing were deceived into placing themselves under a covenant outside of the lineage established by True Father which is God's one true lineage.
The situation is particularly tragic for blessed children who succeeded in preserving their purity only to be defrauded by starting families without receiving God's Holy Marriage Blessing. They are victims, and that is the reason Hyung Jin Nim is willing to pay indemnity on their behalf so that they may retain their 2nd generation status and their children born after Feb. 22, 2013 may retain their 3rd generation status. To take advantage of this special forgiveness, blessed children need to receive the Holy Marriage Blessing for Returning to True Father's Authority by February 13, 2016.
The first Blessing since then that was recognized by God and True Father was conducted on April 21, 2015 at the Sanctuary Church in Newfoundland, PA. See the highlights in the video below.
