Wondrous Words Wednesday 25/5/11

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a fabulous weekly meme hosted by Bermuda Onion, where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our weekly reading.  

Wordy inspiration can strike from any reading. I always have some old weekend papers lying about waiting for me to glance their way before putting them in the recycling.

Reading from The Sydney Morning Herald April 30 edition, about the big news from the day before I came across prelate.

1. Prelates. Noun.

Westminster Abbey, Gothic and ever mysterious, played witness to the young couple who, clearly moved at times, took their vows before 1900 guests- among them kings, prelates and prime ministers.

A high-ranking member of the clergy, especially a bishop. (Free Online Dictionary)

When I saw prelate, I thought it sounded like a word that has something to do with the church, and I am glad to see I was right.
