prelate (noun) high-ranking priest in the Christian church

Any high ranking priest of the Christian church is a prelate. A bishop is a prelate, and so is a cardinal. The archbishop is also a prelate.

  • The visiting prelate from England in the course of his sermon exhorted the people to be loving and kind to the fellow humans. The best way to serve God, the archbishop told them, was to love the poor and the weak.
  • At the meeting of the prelates of the Catholic church, the point of discussion was whether priests should be celibate or be married as in the Protestant church. Most priests voted for celibacy.
