- Dominus Vobiscum
Dominus Vobiscum, meaning "The Lord be with you" (from Roman Catholic Mass, taken from Ruth 2:4 and 2 Chronicles 15:2), is an ancient salutation and blessing traditionally given by priests of the
Roman Catholicchurch during Latin masses. The response is "Et cum spiritu tuo", "and with thy spirit", and the exchange also occurs in Anglican and other Christian services. In some Jewish rites, a person called up to the Torah says "Adonai immachem": the sense is identical. ["Book of Prayer of the Spanish and Portuguese Jews' Congregation, London" vol. 1, page 47.]
Dominus Vobiscum may also refer to the Catholic family retreat centre located in the
province of Quebecin Canada.
