Archbishop, Wife Meet at Rome Hotel

ROME (AP) — A Roman Catholic archbishop and his South Korean wife met for the first time in three weeks Wednesday, just days after the archbishop said he was leaving the woman and returning to the church.

Emmanuel Milingo and Maria Sung met at a Rome hotel, the Italian news agencies ANSA and AGI reported, citing Sung's spokesman.

The two were married May 27 in New York by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon in a group wedding that outraged the Vatican, which was already incensed by Milingo's exorcisms and faith healings.

Sung, 43, hadn't heard from the 71-year-old Milingo since Aug. 8, the day after the archbishop met with the Pope John Paul II in a bid to avert his threatened excommunication for having gotten married.

Last week, Milingo announced he had left Sung, telling national television that he had embraced the pope's appeal to return to the Catholic Church and keep his vow of priestly celibacy.

Sung said at the time she didn't believe him and suggested that he had been drugged. She has been on a hunger strike for 16 days to press her demand that the Vatican let her see Milingo face-to-face.
