It's been published. Here's the most interesting part:

Section VI.
Quote
§ 2. The Ordinary, in full observance of the discipline of celibate clergy in the Latin Church, as a rule (pro regula) will admit only celibate men to the order of presbyter. He may also petition the Roman Pontiff, as a derogation from can. 277, §1, for the admission of married men to the order of presbyter on a case by case basis, according to objective criteria approved by the Holy See.

I've heard that the Vatican's "as a rule" means, in English, "ideally, but not necessarily the case in all circumstances". In any event, the Constitution does allow for a "tradition" of married presbyters within this Anglican structure, at least on a "case by case" basis.

If you will, you can become all flame.

In order to become whole, take the "I" out of "holiness".

Likewise. What would be the Pope's criteria for allowing a married man to be ordained a presbyter?

In Christ,
