It confers the sacramental effects of justification outside of the sacramental sign proper to the sacrament, as St. Thomas teaches.

INPEFESS, they don't think "or" means "or" when the Council of Trent uses the word.  You'll have to go more basic than that to communicate with this mindset.

:LOL:

Reception is in the mode of the reciver.  If the word "or" causes confusion, "justification" will be much more difficult to understand.
