German term or phrase:Versöhnungskuss
From an autobiography from 1873 - Mennonnite community (Holdemaenner) in Manitoba):
" Meine Kinder mussten dem alten Lehrer den Versoehungskuss geben und alles kam wieder zurueck ins alte Geleise."
"Offer the kiss of reconciliation? - Is there an official Mennonite term for that?"
