We had an interesting dinner discussion last night with some friends about excommunicated priests and bishops.
Can they still say mass, ordain, perform marriages, last rites? I know they can still baptize, anyone can baptize (given the proper form, etc.), but what about those sacraments exclusively available only to the Catholic clergy? If they are excommunicated, can they still do this?
I know they “CAN”, but is any of it licit AND/OR valid?
Licit and valid are two very distinct states.
