Leaked synod doc: ordaining married men?

A text presented Friday by Roberto de Mattei of Corrispondenza Romana as a portion of Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation following the Amazon synod is a draft, and not necessarily the final version, according to a Vatican source. “What is now circulating is one draft, which was distributed for review and comment as the final text is developed,” a source in the Dicastery for Communication has said. The text provided by de Mattei is substantially identical to article 111 of the final document of the Amazon synod, which calls for the ordination of married men as priests.
