Personal greetings (chapter 16)

Paul then issued a series of personal greetings to the people in Rome.  He sent his greetings to Prisca and Aquila, Epaenetus, Mary, Andronicus, Junias, Ampliatus, Urbanus, Stachys, Apelles, Aristobulus, Herodion, Narcissus, Tryphaena, Tryphosa, Persis, Rufus, Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, Philologus, Julia, Nereus, Olympas, and all the believing saintly brothers and sisters.  They were to greet one another with a holy kiss.  One-third of the twenty-one Christians identified in these greetings were women, but there was no mention of Peter.  Do you personally greet people?
