And with a computer-networked International Translation Unit, translating a greater volume of materials in 1999, than through all forty-eight previous years combined. We’re also utilizing our own film studio, film production lab and dissemination facilities — all to bring our message to every inhabitant of this planet.

And to accommodate the millions stepping onto The Bridge, we’re continually building and improving our organizations. Because that’s our living Bridge to span the whole of this planet, with our Church organizations across Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Americas. That’s 163 organizations in all, turning out a new breed of auditors in cities like Washington, D.C. — where LRH established the Founding Church — and Hamburg, where our new church building represents our most powerful statement to date in that nation.

And all of it for another resounding statement on just who we are and what we represent. From one end of this planet to another, with twenty-three hundred missions, groups and organizations.

And that brings us to the close of this evening’s event and this 20th century.

Now, we could all sit back and say to ourselves — look what we’ve accomplished, look how far we have come. From one man, with one book, to a movement that truly spans the globe bringing real solutions, and real help to every strata of society. And if we did that, we would certainly be right. For if you tuned in to all of the New Year’s events around the globe, rolled them into one, they still would not add up to what we have celebrated tonight.

Which brings me to my point. Because our story is not merely the most significant of this century, it is the story of all the ages.

Moreover, when you consider that we now hold in our hands what has never been held in the hands of anyone, then you come to the realization of something else that has been given to us: Responsibility. Religious movements that preceded us, have swept this Earth and, to one degree or another, have brought peace and compassion in their wake. Yet with all that, we find the planet in the state it is in because they did not have the one thing we hold: an actual technology by which Man can save his soul. And while we may be millions strong, let’s crunch the numbers and confront this fact: For every Scientologist, the population contains 1,000 who are not.
