A friend of mine knows someone who is a priest in the" Independent Catholic Church". This priest claims he was ordained in a valid line of apostolic succession. (I had never heard of this church…its supposedly went into schism 100-200 years ago.)
Question 1: Can a priest be validly ordained in the line of apostolic sucession in the Independent Catholic Church or the Liberal Catholic Church (or any other non Roman Catholic Church)?
Question 2: Are the sacraments performed by such a priest valid? Valid but not licit? something else?
