Peace be with you

A letter to the Daily Telegraph from The Rev Ken Francis, Cornwall:

‘I am afraid that dropping to one’s knees in prayer during the ‘Peace’ seldom works. I’ve tried it on many occasions. Peace devotees are a breed not to be thwarted: they pat you on the back, pat your head – or bend down and breathe unctious murmurings in your ear.
I am wondering about a water pistol.’

What on earth is so bad about shaking someone’s hand and saying “Peace be with you”?

But I’ve always fancied introducing water pistols at Easter for when we renew our baptismal vows.
