Catholic Cleric Weds in Rite Conducted by Moon

May 28, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A Roman Catholic archbishop who says God wants him and the Catholic Church to shed the celibacy rule married a physician in a group wedding conducted by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon.

Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, 71, wed Marie Sung, 43, a physician from South Korea, said a spokesman for the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, the central group in Moon's movement.

Milingo has long been at odds with the Catholic hierarchy, although he remains based in Rome and still carries his title.

The Vatican refused comment.
