Excommunicated Milingo to become ‘patriarch’ of sect

Catholic World News - August 13, 2010

Emmanuel Milingo, who was excommunicated in 2006 after illiclitly consecrating bishops and was reduced to the lay state in 2009, has been named the Ecumenical Catholic Apostolic Church of Peace’s patriarch of southern Africa. Milingo had served as the Catholic archbishop of Lusaka (Zambia) from 1969 to 1983 before working for the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant Peoples.

Others “look at me and feel that using my spiritual experience I have greatly contributed to the Church unity,” Milingo said. “They have seen how I have silently suffered many injustices.”

Milingo married Maria Sung at a 2001 ceremony organized by Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church.

    Well, Anyone can use the word Catholic to describe their church but that don't make it so. He broke his trust , he broke his vows and he still thinks he should be the leader of the Church..Goodbye Milingo
