Over the years there has been much saddness when it comes to Ireland!
We reflect on some Irish stores that shared the sadness that always had an underlining hope that through efforts by the Church and people in their communities they would find peace.
Listen to Father Tom a Catholic Priest who shares about the struggle of getting jobs for folks that would be a major step towards peace for this island country.
Wilford Orr shares about the Protestant struggle and finding a way for common purpose and mutual understanding in Ireland.
John tells of a special community “Corrymeela ” that brings people from various traditions in Ireland and around the world together to find ways for peace where there is heartache and disagreement.
Finally, a Pittsburgh icon, Art Rooney Sr. who’s son Dan served as Ambassador to Ireland on Passages. Art tells about how he as one of the founding owners of the NFL/Pittsburgh Steelers’ was humble guy and an everyday person that was a good example for his family, friends, and the Pittsburgh community.
