Fun word of the week: Apocrisiarius. Something else to add to my list of pointless ecclesiastical titles that I'd like to have conferred upon me without having to leave the lay state. (cf. my ambition to be made a lay subdeacon, or the papal umbrella bearer, or a captain of the Broken Lance Guard, or Grand Almoner, or absentee Prior of St.-Martin-des-Champs (Lizzy understands why), or the Captain-General of the Galleys of the Venerable Religion of the Knights of Malta, or Cardinal Nepos, or Count Palatine of the Lateran, etc.)
