of Saint Mary of Walsingham, also known as the Patriarchal and Royal
Florentine Household, is the patriarchal household in the Imperial
Patriarchate of St. Stephen (Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church).
Its name is derived as a combination of two titles pertaining to Our
Lady, Santa Maria Antiqua and Our Lady of Walsingham, the Patroness
of English-speaking Catholics and the medieval Patroness of England.
Our Lady of Walsingham is also the Patroness of the Patriarchal
Household, and for this reason, her sceptre of three lilies is seen
in the insignia of the Patriarchal See.
