The Personal Ordinariates for former Anglicans have ordained more married men to the priesthood than any Eastern Catholic Churches ever have in their entire history in the new world.
Yes, the Eastern Catholic Churches continue to be held hostage to the "indian reservation" mentality.
I am not so certain that either "Western rite" orthodoxy or "Eastern rite" catholicism can ever overcome the prejudiced desires of the majority rites in either of their Churches and ever be seen on equal terms with the majority rite
. We are in a fallen world with fallen people, where nationalism and pride in ones rite is all encompasing. I've seen it on both sides, there is little to be done about it, except continue to try to educate people in church history...
I even remember meeting seminarians at that Our Lady of Lebanon Seminary in Washington, DC when I visited their church. Back in my naive days I mentioned to them "I hear you easterners have wives" and they were embarrassed to admit they did not in the US. I guess that was the beginning of my disillusionment with Eastern Catholicism. Before 1960 many Eastern Catholics would not even had their sacraments be recognized by latin priests and would have to receive their first communion, confession, confirmation all over again (I dont recall if they extended it to baptism too.) If you are a parent who has 6 children that is an annoying difficult thing to be told. This is one of the reasons why Eastern Catholics who moved to parts of the country where they knew they would be forced to attend Western Latin Churches often gave up and became regular Roman Catholics on paper. Now that may be a worst case scenario, in some instances they were treated better, but this commonly happened in the earlier part of the century with more ignorant or bigoted latin rite priests and bishops. The bigotry was so strong back than, so that is why even today in the seemingly excessively liberalized world of "ecumenical dialogue" the legacy of the indian reservation mentality lingers on and dies hard.
