U2 in the cloister: from a spring 2007 monastery newsletter

A note from inside the enclosure at the Carmelite Monastery of Saint Joseph, Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Piedmont (Oklahoma City), Oklahoma:
The week of Thanksgiving Fr. John Magdalene Suenram, OCD, who comes from San Antonio about three times a year for confessions and a conference, gave us a talk on the Gospel according to U2, the rock group led by Bono. Noticing the powerful message their lyrics contain, he had been thinking about putting his insights into a conference for some time. Our Sr. Donna had previously mentioned the group to Father and had given him a book on U2; we were all delighted with his presentation and enjoyed listening to some of U2’s music.
