My Favorite Piece of Classical Music: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Johann Sebastian Bach

Friday offers a weekly invitation to reflect on the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, that heart burning for love of you. Shouldn't each of us desire that love with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength? 

Some music lifts our hearts and minds to God and overwhelms us with passionate desire. The best music of all, arouses our passions to the love of Christ. Such is the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. 


No matter what instrument and voices are used to pray this piece of music, hearts are moved. Jesus is praised in his people, especially those who use their talents to glorify His Name. 

May the heart of Jesus, in the Most Blessed Sacrament, be praised, adored and loved at every moment in all the tabernacles of the world through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
