It is considerable pertinence that Father Fama was “ordained” by JP-II. He however, after considerable study, entertained doubts about the validity of his ordination and spoke with other Traditional Catholics who in turn strongly urged him to get conditionally ordained by a traditional bishop. He also was informed that Bishop Taylor, whose orders he investigated in Rome, where he had access to such information, had valid orders and was a true bishop, and hence had the power to ordain and consecrate.
So, for years, Father Fama became accepted by many traditionalists and he worked feverishly in promoting the faith as best as he could.
May the Lord have mercy on his soul
