I grew up Roman Catholic. To this day, my favorite part of mass was when everyone has to overcome their shyness, shake hands with their neighbor, and say, “Peace be with you.” The reply, “And also with you.”
In Arabic, this is “As-SalÄmu Alaykum”. The reply, “Alaykum As-SalÄm”.
In Hebrew, “Shalom aleichem”. The reply, “Aleichem shalom”.
And then, of course, there’s the quicky in each language… “Peace”, “Salam” and “Shalom”.
Isn’t it amazing all the descending religions of Moses all greet one another with the word Peace… yet we are unable to attain it?
