J.S. Bach, d. July 28, 1750

Praying the daily office today reminded me that today we remember the life and ministry of J.S. Bach. I'm glad he was born, aren't you?

In addition to posting a note on his Facebook wall, I'll share this prayer from the Daily Office at the Mission of St. Clare website:

Almighty God, beautiful in majesty, majestic in holiness, who have shown us the splendor of creation in the work of your servant Johann Sebastian Bach: Teach us to drive from the world the ugliness of chaos and disorder, that our eyes may not be blind to your glory, and that at length everyone may know the inexhaustible richness of your new creation in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
