Bishop | Archbishop


A Bishop is an Overseer, and title of an ecclesiastical dignitary. He has spiritual or ecclesiastical supervision, like that of an Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, and Roman Catholic clergyman. A bishop possesses the fullness of the priesthood, and in regards to Catholic faith, is of Divine institution. Bishop’s rank over priest, and have authority to ordain and confirm, and govern a diocese.


An Archbishop (also known as Metropolitan) holds the position of the highest-ranking bishop. He governs over his own archbishopric or archdiocese. At the same time, he governs over bishops of a well-defined district, which are composed of dioceses, but not of the provinces. These bishops called suffragans or comprovincials are subordinate, and do not rule over others.

Bishop's Dispensation

Bishop's Dispensation - a bishop may grant dispensations. That is, remove the impediments and allow administration of the sacraments. As a bishop, I grant dispensations for all of the dispensable impediments. I have Vatican succession as well as multiple lines of Eastern Orthodox succession. (Anyone of which is considered valid.) I am dedicated to providing solutions to those who need them - marriage is a very beautiful and serious institution. You and your loved one are entitled to the blessings of a priest. My book includes the Ecclesiastical Petition for Dispensation and Decree of Nullity. You may have access to the form by clicking its link.

Bishop's Dispensation - Requirements:

A bishop is a successor to the Holy Apostles and may grant one a Dispensation. A priest alone is not sufficient if you have an impediment. I am here to help you as much as I can. I know that there are many numerous reasons why you might need a bishop's dispensation. Therefore, a bishop's dispensation is required for the following situations:

  • A Previous Marriage
  • Difference in Religion
  • Lack of baptism of one party
  • and numerous situations


Note: "Archbishop Cooper never claimed to be a Roman Catholic bishop; he claims to be Orthodox. It is the Vatican that has said that the Orthodox share the Catholic Faith and are separated sister Catholic Churches. The Envoy Magazine article about Bishop Cooper is misleading. The terms Orthodox Catholic and Orthodox Christian are synonymous. There are independent Western Rite Orthodox jurisdictions all over the world. Bishop Cooper's Order does NOT have gay or women priests." Here is my Consecration Certificate for verification.

In Papal utterances regarding the Orthodox, we are called ". . . Orthodox brothers of the Catholic faith which by God's grace we share."

Pope John Paul refers to the Orthodox churches as ". . . sister Catholic churches . . ."

Here is the Independent proof that validates the Apostolic Succession of +++David Leon Cooper via the George Bussmann line.
