This is a clip from a longer interview on The Meaning of Life with Gay Byrne, an Irish program on RTÉ Television (ht, AP). Much of what Bono says here overlaps portions of the book Bono: In Conversation With Michka Assayas that we’ve highlighted in the past. Bono seems to be in something of a league of his own as such a huge rockstar who is so open with his (solid) Christian faith, and he is articulate about it to boot. Watch the whole interview here.

By the way, did you happen to catch the amazing/dizzying U2 performance of “Invisible” on the roof of 30 Rock on the premier episode of The Tonight Show Staring Jimmy Fallon? Their acoustic set of “Ordinary Love” was pretty mesmerizing, too. Some worthy lyrics here:

‘Cause we can’t fall any further
If we can’t feel ordinary love
And we cannot reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love

Are we tough enough
For ordinary love

    That acoustic version of “Ordinary Love” at the Oscars is soooooo good. It may be my favorite set of lyrics since “Grace” from “How to Dismantle and Atomic Bomb”.

    FYI – “Grace” is from “All That You Can’t Leave Behind”. You know, one of those other U2 albums with an overly verbose title. 😉

      Thanks Joe – dang! I knew that and had them flip-flopped. Hate it when I do that!

    Love this. Love him.
