Stato Pontificio Romano-Ruteno
The Stato Pontificio Romano-Ruteno constitutes an ecclesiastical sovereignty by right of Rome as heir to the Roman Empire with an independent government in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (as the Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church). Additionally, the church is of the Pontifical Orthodox Old Catholic faith and descends 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. As the sole successor of Pope St. Leo X and temporal successor of St. Peter the Apostle, the Catholicate and Patriarchate are fully Catholic and holds the same canonical authority as the Roman Communion (Vatican). The Catholicate and Patriarchate are 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 Catholicate after Benedict XVI by right of Rome and Florence, with the Papa-Catholicos of Rome-Ruthenia 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 Apostolic See embraces as brethren other Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican bodies, such as the current Roman Communion (commonly referred to as the Roman Catholic Church), the Anglican Ordinariate, Eastern Orthodox Churches, and the Anglican Communion. The Imperial Roman Church is defined as the Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate, the Anglican Patriarchate of Rome, and the churches of all Bishops recognised by the Catholicate. 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.
The Stato Pontificio, the Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate, and the Anglican Patriarchate (Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church) maintains certain organisations within its formal structure or sponsored by it. At times these are noted as a "dba" informally. That informal terminology notwithstanding, all such organisations are defined formally as affiliated auxiliaries of the Church.
Notes on Clergy and Staff
Those persons designated as clergy in any capacity, as well as those persons designated as staff in any capacity under any designation whatsoever are not deemed to be employees, associates, or agents of the Imperial Roman Church (Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church, Inc., hereafter referred to as the Church), any entity thereof, or any entity therunto affiliated unless specifically indicated on a person-by-person basis. All clergy and staff, even those in the capacity of director or officer of the 501c3 Church Corporation, serve as volunteers except that permanent or temporary stipends may be provided on a case-by-case basis. Receipt of such stipends is for the purpose of assisting persons in covering the costs of ministry and does not change the nature of relationship between the cleric or staff member and the Church. Clergy and staff assume all liability and responsibility, both for their own actions and with respect with their participation in any and all activities of the Church and its affiliated organisations; and further agree to hold harmless the Church, its hierarchy, and any and all affiliated organisations. Clergy and Staff are nevertheless required to follow the direction and supervision of the Church hierarchy and specific personnel to whom they have been assigned, as well as all Canon Law and other ecclesiastical laws, legislation, and directives. Acceptance of any office within the Church or its affiliated organisations constitutes acceptance of this aggreement.
