The Anglican Patriarchate (Anglican Rite Roman
Catholic Church) is an 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 Leo X in the Bull
Debitum Pastoralis, this right becoming known as the Leonine
Privilege. As the sole successor of Pope 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 Archfather (Bishop of St. Stephen) 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
New Roman Communion is defined as the Anglican Patriarchate and the
churches of all Bishops recognised by the Patriarchate.
