Baptism of Desire and Theological Principles by Fr. Cekada

The principle being stated here is that the sincere desire for the reception of the sacrament suffices, hence "baptism of desire," "confession by desire," "eucharist by desire" and "marriage by desire." There's only 3 more to go and we'll have the entire order of the sacraments of the new law being able to be replaced, in certain circumstances, by the mere desire of receiving them. I don't see why not.
"Why not" is because the Church, for centuries has defined BOD as part of the Deposit of Faith, and not said word one about the things you mention, and never will.
