Vrede vir jou

AardeEk het Rooms-Katoliek grootgeword. Tot vandag toe was my gunsteling deel van die mis wanneer almal hul skaamheid moet oorkom, die hande moet skud met hul naaste en moet sê: "Vrede vir jou." Die antwoord: "En ook by jou."

In Arabies is dit 'As-SalÄ ?? mu Alaykum'. Die antwoord, “Alaykum As-SalÄ ?? m”.

In Hebreeus, “Shalom aleichem”. Die antwoord, “Aleichem shalom”.

En dan is daar natuurlik die vinnige in elke taal ... “Vrede”, “Salam” en “Shalom”.

Is dit nie verbasend dat al die afstammende godsdienste van Moses mekaar met die woord Vrede begroet nie ... tog kan ons dit nie bereik nie?

    Isnâ??t it amazing all the descending religions of Moses all greet one another with the word Peaceâ?¦ yet we are unable to attain it?

    How true! But, when we greet one another do we even mean it?
    The idea behind Shalom is that we mean it. Unfortunately, everyones made it a formality.

    PEACE BE WITH YOU is the title of my new novel. I too found that part of mass to be a fascinating exercise. That played a big part in choosing my title. So, I say to all,
    PEACE BE WITH YOU.

    Good post. You make some great points that most people
    do not fully understand.

    “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.'”

    Ek hou van hoe jy dit verduidelik het. Baie behulpsaam. Dankie.
