Similarities and differences

Over the weekend, in a completely unrelated context, I had a conversation about "similarities" and "differences".

The placing of the Personal Ordinariate in England and Wales under the patronage of John Henry Newman (though the title of Our Lady of Walsingham given to the Ordinariate seems to mean that there is de facto a double patronage) then prompted the following thought.

What are the similarities  - and the differences - between John Henry Newman's founding of the Congregation of the Oratory in England and the establishing of the Ordinariate?
