On March 25, I was in Belfast for an event with the John and Pat Hume Foundation on “Building the Common Ground”.

This cross-community event was hosted by the Passionist community, and I was there to speak about the profound legacy of John and Pat as peacemakers and pioneers of reconciliation, and of the inclusive vision of the Good Friday Agreement.
