QUESTION for FR John:
Does "Sa Grandeur" refer to a person (bishop/ or vicar general) or is it
referring to the CHURCH???

ANSWER:
The title "Sa Grandeur" refers to a Bishop; the English equivalent is "His Excellency".  Please note, however, that "Monseigneur" is often used when the Bishop is addressed by his full name, as "Monseigneur Pierre Denault, Evèque de Québec".  Prelates of lower rank are referred to as "Messire"; the English equivalent is "Monsignor". 

Fr John L
