Schism in the Maltese Catholic Church?
#6
From what I understand, the "Old Roman Catholic Church" split from the Old Catholic Church in the early 20th century. They were essentially an English national church that wanted more autonomy from the Union of Utrecht, which they saw as becoming too centralized. They spread to North America and other places. In other words, they're like Old Catholic Anglicans (and more like traditional Anglicans, with only male clergy, but they can be married, more conservative values and liturgy than most Old Catholics, etc.).

You can tell this is what this guy is from because his succession includes the founder:

It does look like they are trying to lure in traditional Catholics in this case by promoting the Tridentine Mass.
