The Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate is one of the integral universal jurisdictions of H.H. the Florentine-Roman Papa, along with the Coadjutorship of Rome, Anglo-Roman Metropolitan See of Aquileia, the Anglo-Roman Province of Italy, and the Anglican Patriarchate of Rome also held by the Archfather. Angelo Cardinal Sodano, as Secretary of State and acting on behalf and in the name of Benedict XVI, confirmed the historic rights and privileges of the Imperial Roman Church (Anglican Patriarchate of Rome and Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate), including as an independent and sovereign Catholic jurisdiction. The Catholicate is derived from the diverse Apostolic heritage and authority of the Imperial Roman Church, which is both east and west. It is coterminous with and senior to the Anglican Patriarchate of Rome and derives its name specifically from the principle lines of Apostolic authority that are held in addition to Roman: Gallican, Russian, and Byzantine/Greek. The Catholicate is the senior jurisdiction of the Imperial Roman Church, a modern Christian communion of ancient origins that may be described as Old Roman Catholic, Old Catholic, or Pontifical Orthodox. Most completely, it can be called Pontifical Orthodox Old Catholic. It has its own ancient liturgy, the Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Rite, which is both eastern and western, a combination of the liturgy of St. John Chrysostom and the Tridentine rite.

Il Patriarcato Anglicano (Chiesa Romano Cattolica di Rito Anglicano) è una sovranità ecclesiastica gallo-russo-bizantina per diritto di Roma con un governo indipendente a stato consultivo speciale col Consiglio Economico e Sociale delle Nazioni Unite. Inoltre, discendiamo dalla Sede di Utrecht, a cui fu concessa l'autonomia nel 1145 da Papa Eugenio III e confermata nel 1520 da Papa San Leone X nella Bolla Debitum Pastoralis, questo diritto divenne noto come Privilegio Leonino. Come l'unico successore di Papa San Leone X e successore temporale di San Pietro Apostolo in Italia ed in Britannia, il Patriarcato è pienamente cattolico e detiene la stessa autorità canonica della Comunione Romana (Vaticano). Il Patriarcato è il successore ecclesiastico di Roma temporale, il patrimonio temporale dell'Impero Romano rivendicato storicamente di diritto del papato. La successione passò al Patriarcato dopo Benedetto XVI per diritto di Roma e Firenze, col Papa-Principe e Patriarca Anglicano di Roma con autorità papale come successore temporale di San Pietro, e il Papa-Vescovo di Roma come successore spirituale di San Pietro e de facto sovrano dello Stato della Citt� del Vaticano. Anche se amministrativamente indipendente, la Sede Patriarcale abbraccia come fratelli gli altri organismi cattolici e anglicani, come la Comunione Romana corrente (comunemente come la Chiesa Romano Cattolica), l'Ordinariato Anglicano, e la Comunione Anglicana. La Chiesa Romana Imperiale, il Patriarcato Anglicano e le chiese dei vescovi riconosciuti dal patriarcato. Anche se amministrativamente indipendente, la Sede Patriarcale abbraccia come fratelli gli altri organismi cattolici e anglicani, come la Comunione Romana corrente (comunemente come la Chiesa Romano Cattolica), l'Ordinariato Anglicano, e la Comunione Anglicana. La Chiesa Romana Imperiale il Patriarcato Anglicano e le chiese dei vescovi riconosciuti dal patriarcato. I governi delle moderne repubbliche di Italia, Germania, Francia, Svizzera, Russia, Bielorussia, Ucraina, e gli Stati Uniti, e dei moderni regni di Gran Bretagna e Spagna, così come l'Unione Europea e tutti gli altri stati civili non sono affiliati al governo dello Stato Pontificio in esilio.

The Anglican Patriarchate (Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church) is a Gallo-Russo-Byzantine ecclesiastical sovereignty by right of Rome with an independent government in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. Additionally, we descend from the See of Utrecht, which was granted autonomy in 1145 by Pope Eugene III and confirmed in 1520 by Pope St. Leo X in the Bull Debitum Pastoralis, this right becoming known as the Leonine Privilege. As the sole successor of Pope St. Leo X and temporal successor of St. Peter the Apostle in Italy and Britain, the Patriarchate is fully Catholic and holds the same canonical authority as the Roman Communion (Vatican). The Patriarchate is the ecclesiastical successor to temporal Rome, the temporal patrimony of the Roman Empire claimed historically by right of the papacy. The succession passed to the Patriarchate after Benedict XVI by right of Rome and Florence, with the Papa-Prince and Anglican Patriarch of Rome with papal authority as temporal successor of St. Peter, and the Pope-Bishop of Rome as spiritual successor of St. Peter and de facto sovereign of the Vatican City-State. Although administratively independent, the See embraces as brethren other Catholic and Anglican bodies, such as the current Roman Communion (commonly referred to as the Roman Catholic Church), the Anglican Ordinariate, and the Anglican Communion. The Imperial Roman Church is defined as the Anglican Patriarchate and the churches of all Bishops recognised by the Patriarchate. Although administratively independent, the See embraces as brethren other Catholic and Anglican bodies, such as the current Roman Communion (commonly referred to as the Roman Catholic Church), the Anglican Ordinariate, and the Anglican Communion. The New Roman Communion is defined as the Anglican Patriarchate and the churches of all Bishops recognised by the Patriarchate. The governments of the modern republics of Italy, German, France, Switzerland, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and the United States, and of the modern kingdoms of Great Britain and Spain, as well as the European Union and all other civil states, are not affiliated with the Stato Pontificio government in exile.
