Best Ignatian Songs: I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

Our Ignatian song this week is U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” It’s a song of deep spiritual yearning.

You broke the bonds
And you loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Oh my shame
You know I believe it

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

Every time I hear it I think of St. Augustine’s famous saying, “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”  Here is a performance by U2 and Bruce Springsteen.
