Re: Bad priests Father Smith Tuesday, August 3, 2004


Just one correction on your answer---

Although all Masses celebrated by laicized priests are valid but illicit that is not true for any of the other sacraments

The faculities of the Bishop are absolutely necessary for even the validity of granting absolution, confirming, witnessing marriages (except in danger of death where the universal Canons provide the faculities)

Question Answered by Bro. Ignatius Mary, OLSM+

Dear Father:

Thank you for the clarification. I went back and saw the statement you are responding to. That statement was indeed not accurate. Thanks.

God Bless,
Bro. Ignatius Mary
