Pax et Bonum
by Rev. Msgr. Craig F. Harrison
Rev. Msgr. Craig F. Harrison takes us on a spiritual and cultural journey through the streets of Assisi, a small town in Italy and the home of Saint Francis. Pax et Bonum, which appears in the title of the book and many times in the work itself, refers to peace and blessings, which is certainly this books ultimate motive. Harrison describes travelling through the gates of life as a metaphor for suffering through challenges and undergoing changes in our daily lives. We often pass through our gates with mixed emotionssome evoke sadness, happiness, excitement, or dread. By remembering his own journey through the gates in his own life, Harrison invites you to travel with him to Assisi.
