Bono on Christ, Excerpts

Fr. John Whiteford blogs some excerpts from Michka Assayas' book about Bono, lead singer of U2 and a rare bird among today's popular recording artists in that he sounds like a very reasoned and faith-filled Christian, and that is so inspiring. I don't know about Bono enough to judge this way or that, but by his thoughts shared in that book, I can only find comfort and joy -- and cheer him on.

Bono's reported "Christian mysticism" nearly broke up the band in their early days. Their bass player was put-off by it.

That wouldn't be the first partnership or group venture that was confronted and challenged by Christ through someone within. I am happy to see that Bono apparently chose not to back down on his faith.
