What the Pax Looks Like

This is a lovely new "pax."

It was designed and made by a dear friend who is an Italian designer and artist, Maurizio.  Maurizio donated this precious item to FSSP in URBE. 

This is an example of how craftsmanship survives and how the good old days are here to stay, per fortuna.


  1. Does he sell them? How can I get in contact with him?

    Many thanks

  2. What exactly is a "Pax"??

  3. Dear JP,

    I've enjoyed your site for a long time. I'm going to be in Rome and wanted to ask you a question and can't seem to find an e-mail address on the site. How can I get in touch? Thank you.


  4. Every day I read Your blog and I thank to God, that there are people like You on this world. I found out so much... :) Please continue :) You make a very good job ;) Greetings from Poland :)

  5. Mr. Sonnen, forgive my ignorance; but, could you explain what the function of the Pax is? It is beautiful. Thanks and God bless. Ron Placzek

  6. Anita, this is my contact: ioannessonnen at

    Anonymous, my friend does not sell these and only made one, but any artist can reproduce the pax instrument.

    Poland, Polonia est semper fidelis.
