In Gaelic, or Irish as the Irish call their language, to say hello, the first person says “Jesus be with you.”  The other person says then, “Jesus and Mary be with you.”  If another person is part of the greeting, they say, “Jesus, Mary, and Joseph be with you.”  Phonetically, the greeting in Irish would be, “Geerwhitch.  Geersmurgadich, Geersmurgadich es Phadric es Phodric.”

Inspired by this and the below verses, I am drawn to begin greeting and leaving people with “Jesus is with you.”

2 Corinthians 13:5   Examine yourselves to make sure you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you acknowledge that Jesus Christ is really in you?

Matthew 25:40   And the King will answer, “I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me”.

Wisdom 15:3   To acknowledge you is indeed the perfect virtue, to know your power is the root of immortality.

I Love you and so does Jesus, God, Holy Spirit, Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, Saint Francis, Saint Therese Lisieux, your Guardian Angel, all the Holy Angels, and all the Holy Saints.
