In the Catholic Church, the bishop who is head of a particular autonomous Church, known in canon law as a Church sui iuris, is ordinarily a patriarch, though this responsibility can be entrusted to a Major Archbishop, Metropolitan, or other prelate for a number of serious reasons.
Since the Council of Nicaea, the bishop of Rome has been recognized as the first among patriarchs. That Council designated three bishops with this 'supra-Metropolitan' title: Rome, Alexandria, and Antioch. In the Pentarchy formulated by Justinian I (527–565), the emperor assigned as a patriarchate to the Bishop of Rome the whole of Christianized Europe (including almost all of modern Greece), except for the region of Thrace, the areas near Constantinople, and along the coast of the Black Sea. He included in this patriarchate also the western part of North Africa. The jurisdictions of the other patriarchates extended over Roman Asia, and the rest of Africa. Justinian's system was given formal ecclesiastical recognition by the Quinisext Council of 692, which the see of Rome has, however, not recognized. There were at the time bishops of other apostolic sees that operated with patriarchal authority beyond the borders of the Roman Empire, such as the Catholicos of Selucia-Ctesephon.
The highest-ranking bishops in Eastern Orthodoxy, Oriental Orthodoxy, the Catholic Church (above major archbishop and primate), and the Church of the East are termed patriarchs (and in certain cases also popes). The word is derived from Greek πατριάρχης (patriarchēs), meaning "chief or father of a family", a compound of πατριά (patria), meaning "family", and ἄρχειν (archein), meaning "to rule".
Originally, a patriarch was a man who exercised autocratic authority as a pater familias over an extended family. The system of such rule of families by senior males is termed patriarchy. Historically, a patriarch has often been the logical choice to act as ethnarch of the community identified with his religious confession within a state or empire of a different creed (such as Christians within the Ottoman Empire). The term developed an ecclesiastical meaning, within the Christian Church.
Illicitness is fully within the power of Canon Law to determine....but in(validity) is in the power of God the Holy Spirit, and so validity occurs purely in the Order of Grace, and Canon Law can not touch, change , affect, or determine that in any way.
The office and the ecclesiastical circumscription of a Christian patriarch is termed a patriarchate. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are referred to as the three patriarchs of the people of Israel, and the period during which they lived is termed the Patriarchal Age.
The word patriarch originally acquired its religious meaning in the Septuagint version of the Bible.

Archbishop James Atkinson-Wake (Primaz) was consecrated Diocesan Bishop of Cambridge. He was elevated by the late Archbishop of Brasilia DF as Archbishop and granted autonomy. Read the testimony of Rev'd Monsignor. Anselom Pamintuan PC. OSB who studied Canon Law at the Pontifical University Santo Tomas from 1983 up to 1985. He was a member of the CLSP (Canon Law Society of the Philippines). This means he was given the freedom and right to ordain and consecrate new bishops. Theirfore as he grants Apostolic Mandate by the virtue of his sacred office and that he has the right and jurisidiction to ordain new priests and consecrate new bishops the same for the Holy Office Decree 1951 has no effect as he is not of the Popes household. As the decree had no effect in 1937 and 1948 it has no effect on him also unless he becomes under the supreme authority of the Roman Pontifff. This includes canon law of 1983 that was amended for Vatican II Roman Catholics and not Vatican I. By law canon law is a simple guide and can be disposed of if it becomes harmful and abused against a individual, priest and or bishop.
All bishops rightfully installed and consecrated to the office of Diocesan bishops by right are legislatures of their Diocese.
Canon law it has always been taught that If its very purpose has ceased to be verified i.e. St. Thomas Aquinas states; “ laws are ordinances of right reason made for the common good promulgated by one who has authority in society”. A fundamental principle of law is that Law ceases automatically: 1. if through changed conditions, it has become harmful, impossible or irrational;
for the whole community” (Moral Theology, Ff. Henry Davis, 1958). These same facts above were always taught between 1883 - 1973 by: His Eminence, Most Reverend Amleto Giovanni CARDINAL Cicognani, Titular Archbishop of Laodicea in Phrygia. Secretary Emeritus of the Secretariat of State. Cardinal-Bishop of Frascati. Cardinal-Bishop of Ostia. Dean of the College of Cardinals. Professor of Canon Law at the Pontifical Institute of Canon and Civil Law in Rome. To accuse a priest or bishop of being doubtfully or invalidly ordained or consecrated, without sufficient reason, is objectively a mortal sin of injustice. Sacerdotium vol. III p.3.
He was ordained a priest at the age of 23 years on March 30th 1974 by Most Rev'd. Gregorio Espiga. OAR. Vicar Apostolic of Palawan.
He took up Canon Law at the Pontifical University Santo Tomas from 1983 up to 1985. He was a member of the CLSP (Canon Law Society of the Philippines).
He was made a Monsignor by the full authority of the Pontiff of Rome.
Attestation of the Validity and Licitness of both Archbishop James Atkinson-Wake & Archbishop Neville Anderson as true Catholic Archbishops with the statement:
"That when Archbishop Carlos Duarte Costaconsecrated Archbishop Luis Fernando Castillo Mendez consecrated Archbishop Neville Anderson and Archbishop James Atkinson-Wake given the material and formal condition being met, it was a absolutely Valid and Licit consecration, both these two Archbishops (Neville and Atkinson-Wake) has the power to lay hand on men who are the proper material and they have the proper intent, and cite the proper Rite.
Msgr. Milan Kucera, LL.M. PH.D. Studied both Mundane law and Catholic Canon law (both Roman Catholic Canon Law and the Code of Canons of Oriental Churches) at Charles University in Prague (established in 1348 by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV) I, graduated with a Master's degree in 2007. I, later achieved a Ph.D. in European Studies. He is a former Novitiate of the Dominican Friars at St. Giles Monastery in Prague.
He has carefully studied Archbishop James Atkinson-Wakes apostolic succession and as a lawyer trained in canon law, dogmatic theology, moral theology and ecclesiastical history he confirms that he came to an absolutely clear conclusion that Archbishop James Atkinson-Wake is;
(a) a validly (though probably illicitly --but even that is a matter of discussion) consecrated bishop.
(b) not just any Christian bishop, but a Catholic bishop,
(c) a bishop consecrated in the pre-Vatican II form,
(d) a bishop consecrated by a Catholic bishop who himself was consecrated in the pre-Vatican II form by a pre-Vatican II Catholic bishop.
