Thanks! Problem fixed!

Jimmy, first, thanks for fixing that.
I was listening to the program, and I have a further question in response to your answer to this question “Can priests in the Society of St. Pius X validly celebrate the sacrament of penance? How about those in the Charismatic Episcopal Church?”
Considering, as you said, the fact that the SSPX priests would not have faculties to absolve sins from the Bishop, wouldn’t “Ecclisia Supplet” (spelling?) kick in, so long as they were unaware of the sacramental defect?
Futher, if it did kick in, they would be absolved because the “Church provides the grace”, but it would not be considered a valid sacrament anyway right? even though it had the sacramental effect?
Thanks in advance.

For which definition of “through faith”?
If the one Trent used, then of course, but if the one that the Protestants actually use, then actually, I think we are on the same page, using words differently.
