I know we've had a number of threads about married EC priests (or lack thereof Sad) in the canonical territory of the LC Church.

This thread is for considering the flip-side: What about LC priests living in the canonical territory of an EC Church? Are they celibate?

Yes, somewhere here I've brought that up.

I could understand enforcing clercal celibacy to the Eastern Catholic clergy in the West if they allowed Married Latin clergy in the East. Both are understandable positions but I don't think they can coexist.

E.g. Ukraine. Many other places, but I won't try to give a comprehensive list.

Actually, incorrect. See Ethiopian Catholic Church and the canonical territorial status thereof...

In 1995, two new eparchies, Barentu and Keren, were established in Eritrea,[3] and the Latin Rite apostolic vicariate was abolished. Eritrea thus became the only country where all Catholics, whatever their personal liturgical rite, belong to an Eastern Catholic jurisdiction.

Mandatory celibacy is the discipline for Roman Catholicism everywhere, with limited and very restricted norms established for exceptions. Geography or geographical jurisdiction play no part in the application of this discipline.

Actually, not only there is such a thing, but the basis for not allowing married EC priests in places like the US is that they are "outside their canonical territory".

"acceptable field of operations" is more like it.

I'd have to look, but I don't recall canonical territory being defined in the Codex Canonum Ecclesiarum Orientalium.  The Italo-Albanians are in their own "canonical territory."  How's their stand on married clergy?  Like the Romanians in Italy?

The canonical territory of these churches is pretty easy to define:

Canons 146-150.  The Italo-Albanians have always had a married priesthhood which makes the Italian position on the Romanians even more ridiculous.  The Italo-Albanian Eparchies are also territorial in that the have charge of the Latin parishes within their district as well as their own.

No the Syro-Malabars and Syro-Malankars adopted mandatory celibacy for the priesthood.  The Copts, Ethiopians, and Syriacs, adopted prefered celibacy in that celibacy is considered the norm but the patriarch/metropolitan may grant dispensations.

In a way, although if there's one thing I've heard about a million times it's that having married priests "isn't the tradition" in the Latin Church.

Although limited in numbers, the RCC have accepted ordained ministers with families to the priesthood and have in some cases assigned parishes to such families.  Most have been assigned administrative roles in the RCC however.

No, because in the Latin Church dispensations are considered an extraordinary exception, must be given by the Pope and are only given to converting Protestant clergy.  Among the Copts, Syriacs, and Ethiopians the dispensation is granted by the patriarch/metropolitan for men of teir own Church and they are common.

But I suspect Michał's point was that the Pope is the Latin Church's patriarch.

I thought he meant they must ask the dispensation of Rome rather than their own patriarch.

That is only outside of "the canonical territory of an EC Church," e.g. the US or Britain.  Not in Eastern Europe nor the Middle East.
