Territorial Abbey
A TERRITORIAL ABBEY (or TERRITORIAL ABBACY) is a particular church of the Catholic Church
Catholic Church
comprising defined territory which is not part of a diocese but surrounds an abbey or monastery whose abbot or superior functions as ordinary for all Catholics and parishes in the territory. Such an abbot is called a TERRITORIAL ABBOT or ABBOT NULLIUS DIœCESEOS (abbreviated ABBOT NULLIUS and Latin for "abbot of no diocese"). A territorial abbot thus differs from an ordinary abbot, who exercises authority only within the monastery's walls or to monks or canons who have taken their vows there. A territorial abbot is equivalent to a bishop in Catholic canon law . While most belong to the Latin rite , and usually to the Benedictine or Cistercian Orders, there are Eastern Catholic territorial abbeys - most notably the Italo-Greek Abbey

Cardinal Vicar Of Rome
CARDINAL VICAR (Italian : CARDINALE VICARIO) is a title commonly given to the vicar general of the Diocese of Rome for the portion of the diocese within Italy (i.e. excluding the portion within Vatican City ). The official title, as given in the Annuario Pontificio , is "VICAR GENERAL OF HIS HOLINESS". The Bishop of Rome is responsible for the spiritual administration of this diocese, but because the Bishop of Rome is also the Pope , with many other responsibilities, they appoint a Cardinal Vicar with ordinary power to assist in this task. Canon law requires all Catholic dioceses to have one or more vicars general, but the Cardinal Vicar functions more like a de facto diocesan bishop than do other vicars general. The holder has usually been a cardinal , but as of 2017 holds the rank of archbishop
