Excommunicated Milingo to become ‘patriarch’ of sect
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.
