RE: Confirmation sponsors
Question from Anonymous on 4/16/2013:

You answered no to my question. What does it mean now since the priest allowed his father to be his sponsor? Is the confirmation valid? Does one have to have a sponsor to be confirmed?

Assuming it was otherwise conferred correctly, the confirmation was valid, but it was illicit (unlawful) for the priest to allow your son's father to be his confirmation sponsor. Assuming none of you knew that at the time, the culpability would lie with the priest, who should have known.
