Catholic News Service: Rome’s ban on Eastern rites’ ordaining married men in Western lands still on
Rome’s prerogative, nothing to do with doctrine and, unlike last century when it caused a couple of schisms for no good reason (the other side wasn’t liberal), it won’t change anything because it’s long been those churches’ norm. The real issue with the Orthodox wouldn’t change; it’s still the Pope scope. The Orthodox of course ordain the married in the West but they’re hurting for vocations (especially native ethnic ones?) and simply people (losing them) too.
