Church Says Rev. Sun Myung Moon Unlikely to Recover

The Unification Church said Friday that its 92-year-old founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon, who has been in a critical condition since early August, may be unable to recover from illness.

The comment followed media reports that cited doctors as saying, “He can’t be cured with current medical technology. We did everything we could do.”

The church said Moon’s family has moved him from Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital to Cheongshim Hospital, located in Gapyeong, Gyeonggi Province, regarded as the Mecca of the Unification Church by its followers.
