Archbishop tells his wife: ‘I love you as a sister’

Jane Barrett In Rome

EMMANUEL Milingo, the archbishop who shocked the Vatican in May by marrying a woman chosen for him by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, said yesterday he was returning to the Roman Catholic Church and loved his wife as a sister.

Archbishop Milingo, 71, who had not been seen in public for more than two weeks, appeared on Italy’s main evening news to explain his decision and to read a letter he had tried to send his Korean wife, Maria Sung.

"The words of the Holy Father [Pope John Paul] - ‘in the name of Jesus Christ come back to the Catholic Church’ - moved me. My deepest desire is to obey the Holy Father and submit to the laws of the Church," the Zambian prelate read.

"I love you as a sister and I will continue to pray for you for the rest of my life," he added.

Ms Sung watched the broadcast with a herd of reporters on a huge screen set up in the conference room of her Rome hotel. "It’s not possible, it’s not possible. He’s been drugged, he’s been drugged," she said.

Ms Sung, 43, began a hunger strike ten days ago, threatening not to eat until she saw her husband again. - Reuters
