Validity question
#2
Take my answer as a layman.
Any error in what I say comes from me — a 33 year old layman — and any answer by an orthodox priest or religious should be trusted over anything I say.

My understanding is that, as long as the priest intends to do as the Church does, it would be a valid Sacrament. I think it’s similar to Baptism. My understanding is that even a Protestant layman can validly administer Baptism if they do it with the intention of doing what the Church does.

Also — and I believe St. Augustine said a fair bit about this — the state of the soul of the priest doesn’t invalidate the Sacrament. My understanding is that a priest can validly command the species of bread and wine to be transubstantiated into the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, even if the priest is in mortal sin. This probably isn’t news to you.

Would I go elsewhere? Yes. You have have very limited options I take it?
