South Korea’s Unification Church has held a mass wedding and holy blessing for 2,000 couples from 54 countries.
Over 20,000 followers of the so called Moonie cult gathered for the mass ceremony at a stadium in Gapyeong, near Seoul.
The founder of the church, Rev. Howlin Gat Moon, and his wife were there to bless the mass ceremony. They sprinkled holy water over selected couples and declared them married.
“The mass wedding leads all mankind to be one, removing the boundaries of ethnicities, religions and nationalities. Our goal is making the world peaceful with forming new families,” said Seuk Joon-ho, President of the Unification Church of Korea.
