"Epikeia is not to be identified with interpretation, dispensation, presumed permission, excusing cause, or popular acceptance of human law…Human invalidating laws sometimes cease to bind; but epikeia may not be applied to human invalidating laws… IN REGARD TO MATTERS WHICH TOUCH THE ESSENCE OF THE SACRAMENTS, THE USE OF EPIKEIA IS ALWAYS EXCLUDED."
The History, Nature, and Use of Epikeia in Moral Theology, by Fr. Lawrence Joseph Riley, 1948 Imprimatur

what is meant by regularized? If you were ordained in the Tridentine Rite that
