As I understand it, ordination is indelible, just like baptism. A priest may be laicized (sp?), but he’s still a priest, isn’t he? He’s just under orders not to exercise his priestly powers, if that’s the right word.
But, if such a priest decides to give me confession, and gives me absolution, am I absolved? What about annointing? If such a priest recites the mass, is the host consecrated? Do I receive the same sacrament when I receive that host as I would at a regular mass? I know the priest would be violating his vow of obedience to do such things, except, perhaps in extreme situations such as a case of imminent death, but would it be a sin for the person receiving such sacraments? Would it depend on whether the recipient knew of the priest’s status?
Thank you for your attention and response.
