Catholic Prayer: Slovakian Daily Religious Expressions

Description:

Here are some expressions that were frequently used among Slovakian people. Let us restore this beautiful tradition of using religious phrases within our daily conversation.

Prayer:

On entering a Slovak home, the form of salutation is always, "Praised be Jesus Christ," to which is answered, "Forever and ever." This salutation is also a "must" on the street when it is a question of meeting a priest or religious.

In the home the hand of the priest and religious is always reverently kissed along with the greeting.

On taking leave of a Slovak home, the expression used is always, "Remain with God," to which is answered, "And you with His Divine Son."

Other pious expressions heard repeatedly in every Slovak home are: "The Lord help you," "The Lord hear us." Gratitude is always expressed by "The Lord reward you."
