From a reader:
Why do people sometimes refer to Bishops as a “Msgr. [name]”? I’ve seen this occasionally, and never understood why. It seems the most logical way to do it would be “Bp. Name”, or “The Most Rev. Bp. [name]”, or something like that.
The title “Monsignor” is really just “My Lord”.
Bishops are commonly addressed as “Monsignor” in some countries. In Italy, for example, they are normally called “Monsignore”. If you run into someone using “Monsignor” for a bishop or an archbishop, they are probably doing so because of European influence.
