Sunday Sermon, Some Bach to Bach Humor, and a Sunset.

22 Mar

“A day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered.” – Nicholas Sparks

Another beautiful Sunday. Mass on TV.

Today’s Gospel was the story of Andrew and Phillip informing Jesus that people requested to see Him. Jesus then said it was time for the Son of man to be glorified…

28 Father, glorify your name! A voice came from heaven, ‘I have glorified it, and I will again glorify it.’ 29 The crowd standing by, who heard this, said it was a clap of thunder; others said, ‘It was an angel speaking to him.’ 30 Jesus answered, ‘It was not for my sake that this voice came, but for yours.31 ‘Now sentence is being passed on this world; now the prince of this world is to be driven out.32 And when I am lifted up from the earth, I shall draw all people to myself.’33 By these words he indicated the kind of death he would die.

My take on it… Jesus did not ask for glory for himself, but to have the people learn the true way and follow Him. All will be judged and believers will join Him heaven.

According to Wikipedia, today is the birthday of the great composer Johann Sebastian Bach. (I thought of my old friend Leon Krejci who loves his classical music and painting famous composers.)

Johann Sebastian Bach[a] (31 March [O.S. 21 March] 1685 – 28 July 1750) was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations, and for vocal music such as the St Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach Revival, he has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.[3][4]

A little BACH humor for Leon.

Now, for my lovely sunset photos.

I hope you had a spectacular Sunday, my friends.
