  Curate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
From the Latin curatus (compare Curator), a curate is a person who is invested with the care, or cure (cura), of souls of a parish.
In the charismatic and/or evangelical part of the Anglican church, the role of the curate is usually perceived a little differently.
Curates in charismatic and/or evangelical churches tend to be seen as an assistant leader to the overall leader, often in a larger team of pastoral leaders.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Curate   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
As a general rule, curates are not moved without good reason from the churches which they serve; such a reason should be the promotion of the curate, the good of a particular parish, or the general good of the diocese.
If disputes arise between the parish priest and the curate, the matter is to be referred to the bishop, and in the meantime the curate is to abide by the decision of the parish priest.
Every week the curate is to meet the parish priest in order to receive from him instructions as to the arrangements for the coming week (it is to be noted that in some parts of Ireland the curate resides apart from the parish priest).

 Curate's egg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The expression "a curate's egg" means something that is partly good and partly bad, but as a result is entirely spoiled.
The phrase first appeared in a cartoon in the humorous British magazine Punch on 9 November 1895.
Drawn by George du Maurier and entitled "True Humility", it pictured a timid-looking curate taking breakfast in his bishop's house.

The curate recounted in brief, reasons of Don Quixote’s madness, and how that disguisement was requisite to bring him away from the mountain wherein at that present he made his abode.
But scarce were they gone out of the inn, when the curate began to dread a little that he had done ill in apparelling himself in that wise, accounting it a very indecent thing that a priest should dight himself so, although the matter concerned him never so much.

 Neil Gaiman - Neil Gaiman's Journal
"Curate's Egg" comes from a Victorian Punch cartoon (see how educational this blogger is? As of several days ago, you know all about Punch, the Punch lunches, even the initials on the table of the Punch lunches).
As explained on Word Detective, DuMaurier's tag line, "Parts of it are excellent!", caught the popular ear at the turn of the century, and "a curate's egg" soon became a metaphor for a bad situation that someone persists in trying to salvage with misplaced or phony optimism.
Which is to say there's an underlying rottenness implied by "a Curate's Egg" that using it to mean, literally, "good in parts" doesn't get across.

The curate consoled him, telling him that when his master was found he would get him to renew the order, and make a fresh draft on paper, as was usual and customary; for those made in notebooks were never accepted or honoured.
The curate would not let them hood him, but put on his head a little quilted linen cap which he used for a night-cap, and bound his forehead with a strip of fl silk, while with another he made a mask with which he concealed his beard and face very well.
The curate, who was aware of his misfortune and recognised him by the description, being a man of good address, approached him and in a few sensible words entreated and urged him to quit a life of such misery, lest he should end it there, which would be the greatest of all misfortunes.

LONDON, Dec 2 (Reuters) - A young British curate leading a legal battle over the abortion of a baby with a facial disfigurement said she was determined to fight a culture of perfection which is driving society towards eugenic-style human selection.
Joanna Jepson, a 27-year-old clergywoman, was horrified to learn of a case where a woman was granted a late-term abortion because the foetus was found to have a cleft lip and palate.
Jepson, who works as a curate in the town of Chester, northwest England, says her own experiences as a child with severe jaw abnormalities underline her determination to win the case.

 Questions & Answers: Curate's egg
A curate is an ordained minister who is an assistant to a vicar or parish priest; he (these days sometimes she) is at the bottom of the priestly pecking order, poorly paid and with no job security.
Readers liked this exchange so much that the cartoon led to the catchphrases “parts of it are excellent”, and “good in parts”, which are recorded from the beginning of the twentieth century.
The phrase curate’s egg itself means something that is partly good and partly bad and so not wholly satisfactory: “this book is a bit of a curate’s egg”.

One of the cartoons reprinted in the first issue of the new Punch I picked up was a genuine classic by George du Maurier, not only a funny cartoon in its own right, but the source of a remarkably durable and pungent English metaphor.
The joke is, of course, that such a thing is impossible -- a rotten egg is 100 percent rotten and utterly inedible -- but the curate is so afraid of offending his host and possibly damaging his career that he is willing to eat the egg anyway.
DuMaurier's tag line, "Parts of it are excellent!", caught the popular ear at the turn of the century, and "a curate's egg" soon became a metaphor for a bad situation that someone persists in trying to salvage with misplaced or phony optimism.
