Latin translation

Hello linguaphiles! Can anyone tell me what this means? I have never taken Latin, and can only make poor guesses from my French knowldege:

About the only thing that I know for sure is that it ends "in peace."

Thanks! ;)

EDIT: Answered! Thanks so much! Totally makes sense in the context.
