There are so many other ways to refer to someone to show respect and WORSHIPFUL MASTER, in my opinion, is at the end of the list and, in fact, shouldn't even be on the list.
Oh, those darn English and their titles.
Now run along.
Uhm. Actually the term derives from history. To this day lower court judges are 'worshipful' and upper courts 'honourable'. They're just two adjectives. Personally I think 'friar' is a fucking -weird- arse title. Doesn't mean every friar on the planet is the antichrists minion.
