Tornielli: “Peace” agreement reached between Vatican and Lefebvrians

So the Church teaches that Intention springs from correct Form and Matter?

I always wondered this since I learned about Intention: What if the priest does not believe that what he is doing at Mass is re-presenting Christs Sacrifice in an unbloody manner, but instead believes that what he is doing is only presiding at a communal meal?
If he still says the right words of Consecration, but has the wrong intentions, maliciously or from ignorance, is the Mass still valid?
