He came via the Anglican church though. He was the only person specifically I could think of that was ordained but married.

I'm not sure, though, that I understand the reasoning why this is permitted. Being "called" as a minister to a heretical sect isn't the same as being called as a Catholic priest, IMO. I'm having trouble seeing how we got from point A to point B.

We have an ordination in my archdiocese this weekend of a married man who was a minister of the United Church of Canada and converted. He's married with children. I'm very unsettled by it, and was wondering if there was other precedents for it (there are, so that alleviates some of my concerns, but not all).
