Peace in Liturgy
In word and ceremony jt oocurs frequently, particularly at Holy Mass, in the Canon, in prayers six times, and twice in action as the priest drops the particle of the Host into the chalice, and as he gives the kiss of peace to the deacon, who in turn passes it on to the assisting clergy. A bishop celebrating salutes the people with Pax vobis (peace be to you) instead of "The Lord be with you!" It occurs also in the liturgy for Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost. "Queen of Peace" is a title added recently to the Litany of Our Lady.
