Vatican newspaper again pays tribute to U2
October 11, 2010
L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper, has again paid tribute to the Irish rock band U2. Lauding the band’s performance before 75,000 in Rome on October 8, Giuseppe Fiorentino and Gaetano Vallini note with approval that Bono, the band’s lead singer, asked those in attendance to pray for Burmese political prisoner Aung San Suu Kyi-- an action that “demonstrates that engagement in favor of human rights and against poverty does not necessarily end in political correctness.”
