Pretty standard Identikit reconstruction from witness accounts.

Or an angel.

Only a living priest can administer a valid sacrament. I doubt that God would cause a miracle which had an invalid sacrament as part of it.

Disagree. Heaven has no limitations, since all that comes from Heaven is by God's Command. Angels have been known to bring Communion/Eucharist to the imprisoned, etc.

Disagree.

Then you disagree with how the Church has always understood the nature of the sacraments.

Do you have a cite? I've never heard of this and it flies in the face of many arguments in favour of the strict interpretation of EENS, that God will supply water baptism even to a person stranded alone on a desert island if they truly desire it.

For the fact that a sacrament per se cannot be validly performed without the minister actually performing a physical action?

Why is that a problem? The "strict interpretation" was condemned by Pope Pius XII.
