Unification Church founder in critical condition

The founder of the controversial Unification Church is in a South Korean hospital in critical condition due to complications from pneumonia, his spokesman said on Thursday.

This handout photo from the Segye Times shows Reverend Sun Myung Moon (L), the founder of the Unification Church, and his wife Han Hak-Ja, blessing newlyweds during a mass wedding ceremony organized by the church at a sprawling exhibition centre in Goyang, north of Seoul, in 2010. Moon is in a hospital in critical condition due to complications from pneumonia, according to his spokesman.

Sun Myung Moon, 92, was admitted to Seoul’s St Mary’s Hospital on Tuesday and has been unconscious since then, Ahn Ho-Yeol told AFP, describing his condition as very critical.

“He is on life support and cannot communicate… doctors say the next three days will be the critical period,” Ahn said. Close family members, including Moon’s son and successor as church leader Hyung Jin Moon, were at his bedside.

The church’s website posted a message urging the faithful to hold special prayers from Thursday until September 24 for the recovery of “the true father”, including a three-day fast beginning Friday.
