PART (V) - MARRIED PRIESTHOOD OF THE ORDER OF SAINT CHARBEL (Proposed)

1. It is the intention of the Founder, that the Order accept Married laymen of the Third Branch of the Order, for training as Married Priests of the Order, and to accept Married Priests of the Eastern Rite Churches into the Order, with their families.

2. It is also the intention of the Founder, that the Order accept Laicised former Priests, who wish to recommence their Priestly Ministry, for retraining and appointment in the Order.

3. Because these are matters of fundamental concern to Holy Mother Church, impinging on questions of Canon Law and Traditions in the Roman and Eastern Rites of the Church, no attempt is being made at this time to write these issues into the Rule and Constitutions of the Order.

4. Consideration of these matters will be left until Competent Authorities in the Roman and Eastern Rites of Holy Mother Church, are able to address them.
