So, convalidation came up on the Etiquette board, and there was a question of whether convalidation was A)a holy sacrament or
a "procedure to correct something the Church viewed as a booboo." It wasn't something we really studied at a K-12 Catholic school, so I'm not sure. My presumption is that it is the sacrament of marriage, albeit belated. Can someone more educated on the subject enlighten me?
As far as TOS goes...I don't think I can link to the thread or to the user who I am sharing this query with, and this is not meant to attack her, merely to clear up a sincere lack of knowledge on the subject, on my part.
