The Dismissal

 

The Priest goes to the middle of the altar and kisses it and sings " Dominus Vobiscum " to which the congregation replies "Et cum spiritu tuo."

The final salutation is sung "Ite, Missa est." ("Go, you are dismissed") or " Benedicamus Domino " ("Let us bless the Lord").  During Masses for the dead the dismissal is "Requiescant in pace" ("May they rest in peace") and the response is "Amen."
