, 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 Catholic
church 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.
Dominus Vobiscum may also refer to the Catholic family retreat centre located in the province of Quebec in Canada.
