ite, missa est

1o_ It is a Latin phrase that could do without the comma, usually write ite missa est and means "idos, has been sent". It was the phrase in which the Roman Assembly was closed, in the sense of already being discussed and informed, so they could withdraw. Already established the Catholic Church, each liturgical ceremony began to be closed with the same expression, from which the word Mass comes. 2o_ Thus, as stated, is the title of a poem by Rubén Darío.
