‘I Went to the Site Where Death Died’ - Bono on Grief, Jesus at Golgotha


Bono is not afraid of death.


The frontman of the rock group U2 is featured in a video series with David Taylor, a theology and culture professor at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. ”Bono & David Taylor: Beyond the Psalms," features the two men talking about the Psalms, music, and their Christian faith.

In the most recent video, Bono, 57, explains how his mother died when he was only 14, and that the “hole in my heart” could only be filled with God’s love.



"I became an artist through the portal of grief," Bono said. "My mother died at her own father's gravesite. As he was being lowered into the ground she had an aneurysm. I was 14. I began the journey trying to fill the hole in my heart with music, with my mates, my band mates. Finally, the only thing that can fill it is God's love, it's a big hole but luckily it's a big love.”

Bono also reveals the profound impact a trip to Jerusalem had on him, particularly a trip to Golgotha, the site where Jesus was crucified.

"I went to Golgotha and I went to the site where death died," Bono said. ”I don't really believe in it [death] anymore, so it has no power over me as it had when I was 14 years old. It's unpleasant for the people we leave behind or if we're left behind, but it isn't unpleasant for the soul to now find it's true meaning.”
