U2 and liturgy

I've written in here before about the ways in which U2 (and Springsteen!) invite me into moments of transcendence more powerful than church liturgy. Here's a nice reflection about the things a U2 concert and liturgy have in common. Posted by hessma at April 20, 2006 01:58 PM

Hi Mary -- speaking of transcendence and these two artists, have you seen U2 and Springsteen performing "Stand by Me" together in 1987?

(....well... it won't take the real URL because of the spam filter... how can I get around this? hmmmm....)

OK: the video is hosted on youtube, and if you go to the youtube main page and search for keywords " U2 bruce stand " it should come up.

Blessed Easter!

Yes, sorry for the spam filter but I was tired of getting ads for viagra and other stuff left as comments. And THANKS for the link! I've never seen that piece of footage, and it's wonderful!

Happy Easter right back at you!
