“Peace & All Good”

The phrase “Peace and All Good” is associated with the Franciscans. St. Francis and his brothers would go out in small groups preaching penance, wishing those they met, “peace and all good,” while proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ. After a period of time they would return together at a designated spot to pray, share their experiences, and renew themselves in their way of life.
