 How to address a priest. Does it matter if you are an atheist

It is sometimes different with the turns to the clergy. Catholics usually have no problem using specific phrases, the problem arises when an atheist wants to communicate with a clergyman, but is it really a problem for him?

& ldquo; parish priest & rdquo ;, & ldquo; reverend priest & rdquo ;, & ldquo; brother & rdquo; or & ldquo; father & rdquo; – these are just the basic phrases that Catholics use when dealing with clergymen. There are as many names for priests as there are titles describing the position of a given clergyman in the church, which is quite a lot. For we turn to a parish priest differently than to a bishop or even a cardinal. To avoid a mishap, please refer to the current etiquette.

Usually n greeting the priest we use & ldquo; God bless! & Rdquo; or & ldquo; Praised be Jesus Christ! & rdquo ;. Saying goodbye to the clergyman we throw & ldquo; With God! & Rdquo ;. In dealing with the bishop, however, we will use the phrase & ldquo; bishops & rdquo; and we turn to the Pope & ldquo; Your Holiness & rdquo; or simply & ldquo; holy father & rdquo ;.

The problem begins when an atheist addresses the priest. According to the linguist Katarzyna Kłosińska from the Institute of Polish Language, & ldquo; we usually turn to the priest, please, priest and the use of this form is not influenced by the denomination (or non-denominational) of the person speaking & rdquo ;.
