What Determines Our Fate for Heaven or Hell? (Ourselves)

"When reason dawns, our actions ... become accountable; hence, they must tend to our last end, and according to the same be regulated. Every thought, every word, every action in harmonious accord with God, is good, leads to God, and merits a reward; whilst the contrary is repelled by His infinite sanctity, and loads the responsible agent with guilt. Either one or the other is the consequence of every act of the free-will. This undeniable truth stamps the value upon all our actions, influences our whole life, and consequently determines our fate for eternity."

Regularized... meaning he was removed of any censor for receiving ordination outside of the Catholic Church, and was formally approved by the Pope (Gregory XVII) to offer Catholic (True) Sacraments, for the Church. (He received canonical mission.)

what is meant by regularized? If you were ordained in the Tridentine Rite that
should be good enough and certainly valid. Why regularized?
