Best Ignatian Songs: Jesus Was an Only Son

“Jesus Was an Only Son” is one of Bruce Springsteen’s loveliest songs, but many of the Boss’s fans–even more-than-casual fans–don’t know about it. Bruce once said, “some people pray, some people play music.” Here, he does both. Lyrics here. (Click here to watch it on YouTube.)


  1. Jim,
    Thank you for bringing a ray of sun, and, The Son, to a wet and stormy East Coast.
    Powerful, and so moving…thank you!

  2. Jim, thank you very much for sharing this beautiful expression of faith. I would never have discovered this on my own. What a great way to begin the day!
