Respected Members of the Curia, beloved Roman Catholic brothers and sisters, We send prayers and sincere condolences for Pope John Paul II, and our Roman Catholic family. We commend the great works and achievements of the Holy Father John Paul II, especially his courage in the God-led campaign against Militant Atheism, and his courage and wisdom promoting a "Culture of Life" to protect families and young people from the torrents of secularism, relativism, and spiritual self-destruction.

We embrace our Roman Catholic leaders and brothers and sisters while attending the living God, seeking His Kingdom and His Righteousness.

Dearest Roman Catholic leaders, history now requires that all religious and denominational division and conflict must end. We need complete peace and reconciliation so we can serve God and all people freely without obstacles. Roman Catholicism and Protestantism should fully reconcile as a loving family. Mere human effort cannot lead to this ideal of complete reconciliation and true peace. Guidance for this can come only from God. Therefore please pray fervently and humbly to ask God for guidance and answers. In this way we can realize God's ideal world of peace.

May God protect the safe ascension of the Holy Father John Paul II, and may God embrace the Roman Catholic family with His love. May you find through your current deliberations that leader who will champion an ideal world of peace for God and for all people.

May God bless you.

Dr. and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon
