  1. Monsignor

    Monsignor, pl. monsignori, is the form of address for those members of the clergy of the Catholic Church holding certain ecclesiastical honorific titles. Monsignor is the apocopic form of the Italian monsignore, from the French mon seigneur, meaning "my lord". It is abbreviated Mgr, Msgr, or Mons. As a form of address, "Monsignor" is not itself an appointment. The three honorary awards most often associated with the style "monsignor" are Protonotary Apostolic, Honorary Prelate, and Chaplain of His Holiness. These are granted by the Pope, usually at the request of the local bishop. The style is also associated with the office of vicar general.
