Catholic Confessions About the Sabbath

Catholic Confessions About the Sabbath

By Kelly McDonald, Jr.

Below are some Catholic Confessions About the Sabbath:

James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of our Fathers, 88th ed., pp. 89. (1877-1921), wrote: “But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify.”

John Laux (A Catholic priest, teacher, and author of many Catholic histories as well as biographies of their saints) states that, “If we consulted the Bible only, we should still have to keep holy the Sabbath day, that is Saturday.” This statement is from a book titled, A Course in Religion for Catholic High Schools and Academies, 1934 edition, vol. 1 P. 51.

We can see by the admission of the Catholic Church that the Sabbath was never changed by God. The Bible affirms the eternal truth that it is still from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset.
