Vatican prefect calls for discussion of ordination of older married men to the priesthood

[Remember that V2 “restored” the permanent diaconate for married men in similar “remote” under-developed areas. There are few (if any) such deacons in those areas but many in the over-developed and still priest-rich (compared to those areas) USA! – AQ moderator Tom]

Catholic World News – 1/23/18

“It is not about being in favor of or against something, but about attentively evaluating various possibilities without being closed or rigid,” said Cardinal Beniamino Stella, prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy, who cited the pastoral needs of remote Amazon communities and Pacific islands [as well as priestless areas of Western Europe and North America].

  1. Curious if these married ordained could offer the Traditional Latin Mass or if so, if any Traditional Society or Traditional groups would accept them?

  2. I doubt that either would occur as it would certainly contradict current official attitudes as well as the discipline followed by traditional organizations.
