When speaking to the Holy Father after providing his credentials, Mr. Hackett, who worked for 40 years with Catholic Relief Services said, “convergence, complimentarity, and support” are what he would like to build on and added that both parties [US and Holy See] “have the same goal in mind and that’s peace.” He added that he hoped to “share tactics and approaches” with the Holy See on how to reach that goal for Israel, Palestine and other countries in the Middle East.  
We’ll see.
