Today’s episode is all about ordinations and episcopal consecrations in the new rite. There were some changes made to both ceremonies – does that make this sacrament invalid? Are we in the midst of a crisis where all the priests and bishops who were ordained using this rite are not actually priests and bishops? To understand this, we’ll need to look at the form and matter of sacraments and answer a fundamental question – can the Church change the form of sacraments at all? And if the Church is allowed to make these changes, what needs to remain in order for a sacrament to be valid? Are there very specific words that must be said no matter what? Fr. McFarland is here this week to answer these questions for us now, on the SSPX Podcast.
