"Peace Is Our Calling" available in Kindle

What does the Benedictine motto Pax mean for members of a monastery? Does it only concern inner peace or is there a responsibility to bring peace to a world torn with violence? Forty years ago, Sister Mary Lou Kownacki, director of Benetvision, sought an answer to that question by interviewing monastics and peace activists around the world and her inquiry resulted in the book, Peace Is Our Calling. The issues addressed remain relevant and a Kindle version of the book is now available. People interviewed included Bede Griffiths, Thich Nhat Hanh, Henri Nouwen, Bishop Gumbleton, Meinrad Craighead and more.
