From a reader:
Many years ago, a chalice was donated to the parish of my grandfather as a memorial after his death. After several years, my grandmother received a call from the pastor stating that they were cleaning house in the sacristy and that if she did not take possession of the chalice it would be given to the diocesan reclamations office. She took possession of the chalice and kept it in her home. Unfortunately, it was later subject to improper handling by the family as well as profanation. After her passing it has come into my possession where it is locked in a safe until proper arrangements can be made. Personally, I would like to give the chalice to a friend of mine who will be ordained to the priesthood this coming May, however, I would not want to give it to him unless proper reparation could be made. Can a chalice be re-consecrated? Is there another means for dealing with these unfortunate circumstances? Any direction you can give is most appreciated.
That sounds like a good plan for that chalice.
Then you can simply give him the chalice, telling him that it needs to be reconsecrated. At that point the ordinandus can handle the situation himself. He can approach a bishop and have it consecrated or, the less desirable solution, assume that it is consecrated after its first use at Holy Mass.
