When the Vatican told bishops, priests and deacons, not to mention anyone who does an emergency baptism, that only the words, I baptize you, in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit constitutes a valid baptism, any other words, to include even the royal “we” invalidates the conferral of the sacrament, a “priest” realized after viewing the video of his baptism that he wasn’t baptized, thus not a Catholic and not a priest. All the sacraments, including all the steps to priestly ordination had to be conferred upon him.
My question, since he had no sanctifying grace of Baptism, was there any grace conferred to him and his soul from the confessions he made and the Holy Communions he received (not from his “masses” but from Masses celebrated by a valid bishop or priest? Think of his invalid ordination at a valid ordination Mass with Hosts and Precious Blood consecrated validly at a Mass the non-priest also “concelebrated.”
What say you? Was anything from God conferred upon a boy or a man who thought he was validly baptized and validly received all of the other sacraments offered to him but through absolutely no fault of his own, were invalid because of an invalid baptism????
