But since the clergy comes from the same provisional generation then most of the clergy are not validly clergy either because they didn't know what til death means either. I believe that the Church has vanished overnight if we accept Pope Francis on this. Fortunately the next day he said that laity were the salt of the earth....clueless....but salty.
LOL! Anyway - I wondered about the validity of orders as well. Fortunately it's over my head and out of my purview.
