Et cum Spiritu tuo

At the moment, we follow Cranmer and say 'And with thy Spirit'. We shall continue to do that. A difference of usage between 'And with thy spirit' and 'And with your spirit is insignificant; if some people in church say one and some the other, it's hardly noticeable, whereas 'And also with you' has a totally different syllabic structure and rhythm.
