Bono at Shriver Funeral

Matt Archbold at the CMR put the video up yesterday of Bono signing the prayer of St. Francis at Shriver's funeral. As painful as it is, try to watch it until the end.

Aside from the painful pitch problem, I can't figure out why the words 'in dying we are born to eternal life' are changed to 'in dying we are born again'. I don't get it. Like in reincarnation?

Eeewww! That was terrible, but at least he didn't scream and yell as he's done in U2 performances. It was held at Our Lady of Mercy Church. Bill Clinton was there. I shudder to think of the violations of Canon 915 that occurred.

Do we get any time off from Purgatory for sitting through that mess?

Terry Nelson said...

Eeewww! Is right. Why does Bono show up everywhere anyway?

Janet - I was wondering if it qualified for an indulgence. It is brutal! I can't imagine sitting through it with a straight face.

Terry - it really makes you wonder how a guy who can't sing get so many political gigs doesn't it. Beats me!

I couldn't watch the whole thing. I'll take it like a man in purgatory instead.
