From the Classroom



There is no better way for Christian friends to greet and part company than to say , "The Lord be with you." Your friend may rejoin "and with your spirit."  

Now you can learn this friendship greeting in the beautiful language of the Church by using the simple translation below.  The Latin phrase is in blue with the translation directly beneath.  Remember that some words in English are implied in Latin so there is not a word for word translation.


Greeting:
Dóminus,      vobíscum.    
The Lord       you with.     

Response:
Et        cum      spíritu   tuo.
And     with      spirit   your.
