Married Anglo-Catholic priests?

If this is right, not so many. The pope’s personal ordinariate to the Anglicans would then permit existing married Anglican priests to be grandfathered in as married Catholic clergy, but you wouldn’t be able to be freshly ordained as an Anglo-Catholic priest. Which is to say, this wouldn’t be the same deal as the Eastern Rite uniates get–and the whole thing becomes a lot more ho-hum: Keep your Book of Common Prayer, your little liturgical doodads, and that’s about it.

Update: Yep, that’s about it.
