The Reformation not Conservative
CI0002 The Catholic World Vol XIII
Rome’s hatred of the Protestant principles in our government years ago is thus expressed in an article by Dr. O. Brownson, a Protestant pervert, entitled “The Reformation Not Conservative,” Which appeared in the Catholic World fir September, 1871 (Vol. XIII, P. 736).  Speaking of the United States government and the Constitution, he says:--
             “If the American Republic is to be sustained and preserved at all, it must be by the refection of the principles of the Reformation and the acceptance of the Catholic principle by the American people …. Interpreted by the Protestant principle …. We do not accept it, or hold it to be any government at all. (Italics ours.)
C0002b Lectures on the History of the Eastern Church

No. 124. Subject: Sunday an effort to Unite Pagans and Christians - - Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley, Lectures on the History of the Eastern Church.  The book is in the SDA Theological Seminary Library.  Stanley, well-known Anglican clergyman and historian of the 19th century, says, “The same tenacious adherence to the ancient God of light [the sun] has left its trance, even to our own time, on one of the most sacred and universal of Christian institutions.  The retention of the old Pagan name of ‘Dies Solis,’ or ‘Sunday,’ for the weekly Christian festival, is, in great measure, owing to the union of Pagan and Christian sentiment with which the first day of the week was recommended by Constantine to his subjects Pagan and Christian alike, as the ‘venerable d’ ‘day of the sun’.  His decree, regulating its observance, has been justly called ‘a new era in the history of the Lord’s ‘day.’  It was his mode of harmonizing the discordant religions of the Empire under one common institution.”  New York: 1884.  Title page and pages 184-185, 2 exposures.  Also No.124 complete in combined reduced 81/2” x 11” notebook size, 1 exposure. Order No. 124N.

Has tradition any connection with the rule of faith
CI00010a A Doctrinal Catechism S Keenan p 174
Ques.—Have you any other way of proving that the church has power to institute festivals of precept? “Ans.—Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her,--she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday, the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.”—“A Doctrinal Catechism,” by Rev. Stephen Keenan, page 174. 1851
CI00010b A Doctrinal Catechism S Keenan p 352 Apr 1846
“Q.—When Protestants do profane work upon Saturday, or the seventh day of the week, do they  follow the Scripture as their only rule of faith,--do they find this permission clearly laid down in the Sacred Volume?  “A.—On the contrary, they have only the authority of tradition for this practice.  In profaning Saturday, they violate one of God’s commandments, which he has never clearly abrogated,--‘Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day.” p. 352

                     Actual sin is any willful thought, word, deed, or

                     Omission contrary to the law of God.”

Catechism of Christian Doctrine
CI00018a Catechism made Easy H Gibson
“You will have noticed, my dear children, that the day on which we keep the Sabbath is not the same as that on which it was observed by the Jews.  They kept and still keep the Sabbath upon Saturday, we on Sunday; they on the seventh, we on the first day of the week.  Hence the Jews close their shops and attend their synagogues upon Saturday, but Sunday is observed as the day of rest by all Christians, even by those sects who are separated from the Catholic Church.  You will ask, what is the reason for this?  It is because the Apostles, who were the first pastors of the Church, by the authority which they had received from our B. Lord to regulate all that regards His public worship, changed the day appointed for the keeping of the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday – from the seventh day to the first day of the week.  And why did they do so?  To honor the glorious Resurrection of our Lord and the Descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles, both of which mysteries were accomplished on the first day of the week.  From this we may understand how great is the authority of the Church in interpreting or explaining to us the commandments of God – an authority which is acknowledged by the universal practice of the whole Christian world, even of those sects who profess to take the Holy Scriptures as their sole rule of faith, since they observe as the day of rest not the seventh day of the week commanded by the Bible, but the first day, which we know is to be kept holy, only from the tradition and teaching of the Catholic Church.”  (Italics ours.)

The Interchurch World movement
CI00023 A C Dixon Baptist Messenger Jun 23 1920
Dr. A. C.

CI00024a Washington Reporter Oct 8 1821 Alexander Campbell-- see CI000200
Christian Church or Church of Christ Alexander Campbell says:  “There is no Divine testimony that the Sabbath was Changed, or that the Lord’s Day came in the room of it  Washington, Pa.Reporter, Oct 8, 1821.Christian:  “Was the first day set apart by public authority in the apostolic age?  No.   By whom was it set apart, and when?  By Constantine, who lived about the beginning of the 4th Century.”  (Alex Campbell, Lecture in Bethany College 1818) “I do not believe that the Lord’s day came in the room of the Jewish Sabbath, or that the Sabbath was changed from the Seventh to the first day of the week, for this plain reason, that where there is no testimony, there can be no faith.  Now there is no testimony in all the oracles of heaven that the Sabbath was changed, or that the Lord’s day came in the room of it.”  And this same point is emphasized by repetition a little further on—Alexander Campbell (Candidus) in Washington (Pa.) Reporter, October 8, 1821.

CI00048a Our Sunday Visitor June 1 1941 
“The Sabbath day or Saturday was instituted by God as the day of rest in commemoration of the Bible story of creation, in which it says that on the seventh day God rested.  In the Christian dispensation the Sunday takes the place of the Jewish Sabbath.  There is no positive and direct reference to this change in the Bible though we may indirectly gather it from certain texts.  If the Protestant be logical in his contention that the Bible is the only guide of faith he should continue to observe the Sabbath as the day dedicated to God and not the Sunday.” – “Our Sunday Visitor June 1, 1941.

A Letter and Answers from Cardinal Gibbons
Change of the Sabbath J Gibbons 1834-1921
No. 10. Subject:  Change of the Sabbath:  Catholic Claim – Gibbons, Cardinal James (1834-1921_, famous archbishop of the Baltimore-Washington Diocese, from 1877 till his death:  Letter, dated Sept. 27, (year not known), in his own handwriting.  The original letter is in the Field Research Service of the SDA Theological Seminary.  It states that Saturday is the Sabbath of the commandments, that Sunday is the first day of the week, to which the church shifted the observance required, and that Christ did not change the day.
CI00050e Letter from B F Thomas to Westworth 1916
The Sabbath W. A. Westworth  2nd ed. 1916 To Westworth  Dear Sir:  “In reply to your letter of inquiry addressed to his eminence, Cardinal Gibbons, I beg to say, first, that there is no Bible authority for the observance of Sunday.  Second, the observance of Sunday rests on the custom introduced by the early days of Christianity, sanctioned by the authority of the Church.  Third, Father Enright’s offer, to which you refer, is his own individual action.  The great body of Catholics have nothing to do with it as a body.  But you can take up the offer.  I send a little pamphlet by this mail.  “Sincerely yours, “B. F. Thomas.”
CI00050f A Letter from Albert Smith Feb 20 1920

CI00050g A Letter to Mrs Miller from E J Connelly July 9 1914
Cardinal’s Residence, 408 N. Charles St., Baltimore, Md. July 9, 1914.
Dear Mrs. Miller:  Your letter to the Cardinal was received.  He cannot answer all the mail addressed to him.  For further information he would refer you to Rev. Arthur D. Hassett, of the Immaculate Conception Church, Bridgeton, N. J. The teaching of the church are the same every where, and Father Hassett, I am sure, will be pleased to give you any information you may ask concerning the doctrines of the church.  As to the questions you ask—The Catholic Church calls Saturday the Sabbath—and the first day of the week, Sunday.  The Catholic Church changed the day of rest and divine worship from Saturday to Sunday, in honor of Christ’s resurrection and the descent of the Holy Ghost on the apostles.  The church has the power to do this because Christ gave her this power.  He founded a church which was to teach, govern, sanctify, and save men.  He gave that church power to make laws and enforce them.  For part of this proof read chapter 16, St. Matthew, 15 to 19 verses, inclusive.  Very respectfully, E. J. Connelly, Ass't. Secretary

The Holy Catholic church.  (2) Are Protestants following the Bible or the holy Catholic Church in keeping Sunday?  Ans.

A. T. Jones Civil Government & Religion p. 116

{Cardinal’s Residence, 408 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, Md., Oct 3, 1889.}

Dear Mr. Franke: -- At the request of his eminence the cardinal, I write to assure you that you are correct in your assertion that Protestants are following, not the Bible, which they take as their only rule of action, but the Tradition of the church.  I defy them to point out to me the word Sunday in the Bible.  If it is not to be found there, and it cannot be, then it is not the Bible which they follow in this particular instance, but tradition, and in this they flatly contradict themselves.  The Catholic church changes the day of rest from the last to the first day of the week, because the most memorable of Christ’s works were accomplished on Sunday.  It is needless for me to enter into any elaborate proof of the matter.  They cannot prove their point from scripture, therefore, if sincere, they must acknowledge that they draw their observance of the Sunday from tradition, and are, therefore weekly contradicting themselves.  Yours very sincerely, W. A. Reardon. 

1 June 1893 Am. Sentinel In a letter to the writer, Cardinal Gibbons, through his secretary, said: -- The Catholic Church changed the day of rest from the last to the first day of the week, because the most memorable of Christ’s works were accomplished on Sunday.  It is needless for me to enter into any elaborate proof of the matter.  They can not prove their point from Scripture; therefore, if sincere, they must acknowledge that they draw their observance of the Sunday from tradition, and are therefore weekly contradicting themselves.  Yours very sincerely, W.

Again and again the challenge has been thrown to Protestants.  Notice these quotations:  May 17, 1936 a Catholic Father in St. Louis University, St. Louis, Missouri, “If you go to the Bible, you find that the seventh-day Sabbath was the original Sabbath, but there is on thing you must understand; that is that we Catholics take the stand that the Bible does not contain all truths necessary to salvation, but that the tradition of the Fathers and acts taken by the Church are of equal importance with the Bible.  The early church Christians observed the seventh day of the week, Saturday, as the Sabbath.  In the early days the early Christian Fathers began advocating Sunday as the Sabbath in honor of the resurrection of Christ.  Early church councils took certain actions changing to Sunday as the Sabbath.  There is no text in the Bible that gives authority for this change.  Protestants broke away from the Catholic Church in the 15th and 16th centuries but they did not go back to the Bible Sabbath; they are still following the Catholic Church in the observance of Sunday.”

Bible Reading p. 329 “Sunday is a Catholic institution, and its claims to observance can be defended only on Catholic principles. . . . From beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last of the week to the first.” – Catholic Press (Sydney, Australia), Aug.25, 1900.

To Tell You The Truth
CI00063 Catholic Virginian Oct 3 1947
Nowhere in the Bible do we find that Christ or the apostles ordered that the Sabbath be changed from Saturday to Sunday.  We have the commandment of God given to Moses to keep holy the Sabbath day that is the seventh day of the week, Saturday.  Today most Christians keep Sunday because it has been revealed to us by the church [Roman] outside the Bible.” – Catholic Virginian, Oct. 3, 1947.

Paschale Gaudium
CI00064 Catholic World March 1894 Sunday & Sabbath 
Dr. William Gildea, in article “Paschale Gaudium,” states: “She [the church] took the pagan Sunday and made it the Christian Sunday. . . . And thus the pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder [a sun god] became the Christian Sunday, sacred to Jesus.” –Catholic World, March, 1894, p. 809.  CHURCH ASSUMES RESPONSIBILITY.  “The church took the pagan philosophy and made it the buckler of faith against the heathen.  She took the pagan, Roman Pantheon, temple of all the gods, and made it sacred to all the martyrs; so it stands to this day.  She took the pagan Sunday and made it the Christian Sunday. She took the pagan Easter and made it the feast we celebrate during this season > . . . . The sun was a foremost god with the heathen . . . .  There is in truth, something royal, kingly, about the sun, making it a fit emblem of Jesus, the sun of justice.  Hence the church in these countries would seem to have said, ‘Keep that old pagan name.  It shall remain consecrated, sanctified, ‘and thus the pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder, became the Christian Sunday sacred to Jesus . . . .  No wonder then that the Church sanctions that old pagan, Saxon word Sunday, as the sign of the Lord’s Day.” – “Catholic World,” (Easter Number) March, 1884.  Ap2.c3

Change of the Sabbath
C00065 Change of the Sabbath Commentary on Psalms J P Migne 1857 Observance 18. Who did Eudebius, bishop of Caesarea, and one of Constantine’s most ardent supporters, say had transferred the obligations of the Sabbath to Sunday? “All things whatsoever that it was duty to do the Sabbath, these WE have transferred to the Lord’s day.”  --Eusebius’s “Commentary on the Psalms,” in Migne, “Patrologia Graeca,” Vol. XXIII, col. 1171.  No. 20. SUBJECT:  CHANGE OF THE SABBATH – Eusebius Pamphili, bishop of Caesarea (c. 260-341):  The noted historian of the ancient church and friend of the emperor Constantine:  Commentaria in Psalmos (Commentary on the Psalms in Greek and Latin, in vol. 5 of the Opera (Works) of Eusebius, which is vol. XXIII of the Patrologiae Cursus Completus, Series Graeca, ed. By J. P. Migne, Paris, 1857 (R.C.).  In his commentary on Psalm 92 (Catholic Bible, Ps. 91), Eusebius makes some striking statements:  “The Word has through the New Testament transferred the festival of the Sabbath to the rising of the light, and has handed down to us the image of the true rest, obviously the saving Lord’s day, and the first day of light.  On this (day) the Saviour of the world, after setting forth all His works among men, having obtained the victory over death and stepped through the heavenly portals, transcended the six days’ creation, and then received a Sabbath appropriate to God, and a most blessed rest, when the Father said, ‘Sit Thou at My right hand, while I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.’”  Again, “Whatsoever things it was obligatory to perform on the Sabbath, these things we have transferred to the Lord’s (day), since it is more fitting and appropriate, and also is first, and leading in rank, and of greater worth than the Jewish Sabbath.”  (Translation by Miss Julia Neuffer, graduate student at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary).  This is the first time the authority of Christ is claimed for Sunday observance.

Bishop Eusebius, the friend of Constantine, wrote: “All things whatsoever that it was duty to do on the Sabbath, these we have transferred to the Lord’s day [as they had begun erroneously to call Sunday].” – “Commentary on the Psalms.”  “We have transferred,” he says.  It was the assumption of ecclesiasticism that it could lay hands upon the law of God.

No. 127. SUBJECT:  PAPAL AUTHORITY SEEN IN SABBATH CHANGE—Eck, John, Enchiridion Locorum Communium (Handbook of Common Places).  Printing of 1533.  The book is in the library of the Catholic University of America.  It was written by John Eck, famous for his debate with Martin Luther at Leipsic in 1519.  In this book he says, “The Scripture teaches, ‘Remember that you keep holy the day of the Sabbath.  Six days you should work and do all your labor, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God.’  Nevertheless the Church has changed the Sabbath to the Lord’s (day) by its own authority, concerning which you have no Scripture.”  (pp. 4a, 5).  “Anicetus I commanded the passover to be celebrated on the Lord’s day.  Pius confirmed it and finally Victor, and they have maintained it.”  (p. 18).  “The Sabbath has been commanded many times by God, but neither in the gospel or in Paul has it been decreed that the Sabbath is to cease.  Nevertheless the church has instituted the Lord’s day through the traditions of the Apostles without Scripture.  John mentions the Lord’s day, Saying he was in the spirit on the Lord’s day.  His disciple Ignatius mentions the same day.   Jerome concerning the Passover of the Lord:  The whole grace of the Sabbath and that ancient festival of the day of the Jews has been changed in this observance.  The Sabbath moreover has been changed, because it signifies the first creation, to the Lord’s day, in that it commemorates the new creature begun in the resurrection of Christ.”  (p. 42a).  Title page and pages 4a-5, 17a-18, 42a-43, 4 exposures.

A Challenge
CI00094 Manitoba Free Press Apr 21 1910
A Challenge.  A Gerritsma, Roman Catholic priest, and Frederic B. Duval, Presbyterian pastor, both of Winnipeg, Manitoba, held a newspaper discussion through the “Free Press” of that city.  The final argument of the priest in the issue of April 21, 1910, was as follows:  If Dr. Duval denies the church the right to legislate, why does he, contrary to the teachings of the Bible, obey her in regard to the observance of the Sunday? . . . .  Now every child in school knows that the Sabbath day is Saturday, the seventh day of the week; yet, with the exception of Seventh-day Adventists, all Protestant denominations keep the Sunday instead of the Sabbath day, because the Catholic Church made this change in the first ages of Christianity.  I herby offer Dr. Duval one thousand dollars if he will show me one passage either in the Protestant or Catholic Bible, in the Old or New Testament, where it tells us to observe the Sunday.”

                                         $1000 OFFERED

If Dr. Duval denies the church the right to legislate, why does he, contrary to the teaching of the Bible, obey her in regard to the observance of Sunday?  The Protestant Bible says plainly, ‘Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day,’ and in hundreds of other places both in the Old and New Testaments, the Bible insists on the observance of the Sabbath day.  Now every child in school knows that the Sabbath day is Saturday, the seventh day of the week; yet with the exception of the Seventh-day Adventists, all Protestant denominations keep Sunday instead of the Sabbath day, because the Catholic Church made this change in the first stages of Christianity.  I herby offer Dr. Duval one thousand dollars if he will show me one passage either in the Protestant or Catholic Bible, in the Old or New Testaments, where it tells us to observe the Sunday.” – Father Gerritsnia in the Winnipeg (Manitoba) Free Press, of April 21, 1910.

“Christ gave to the church the power to make laws binding upon the conscience.  Show me one sect that claims or possesses the power to do so save the Catholic Church.  There is none, and yet all Christendom acknowledges the power of the church to do so, as I will prove to you.  For example, the observance of Sunday.  How can other denominations keep this day?  The Bible commands you to keep the Sabbath day.  Sunday is not  the Sabbath day; no man dare assert that it is;  for the Bible says as plainly as words can make it, that the seventh day is the Sabbath, i.e. Saturday; for we know Sunday to be the first day of the week.  Besides, the Jews have been keeping the Sabbath day unto the present time.  I am not a rich man, but I will give $1,000 to any man who will probe by the Bible alone that Sunday is the day we are bound to keep.  No, it cannot be done; it is impossible.  The observance of Sunday is solely a law of the Catholic Church, and therefore is not binding upon others.  The church changed the Sabbath to Sunday, and all the world bows down and worships upon that day in silent obedience to the mandates of the Catholic Church.  Is this not a living miracle—that those who hate us so bitterly, obey and acknowledge our power every week, and DO NOT KNOW IT?”

9. Protestants Chided.

“Protestants often deride the authority of [Roman] Church traditions, and claim to be directed by the Bible only; yet they, too, have been guided by customs of the ancient [Roman] Church, which find no warrant in the Bible, but rest on [Roman] Church tradition only!  A striking instance of this is the following: -- The first positive command in the Decalogue is to ‘Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy,’ and this precept was enforced by the Jews for thousands of years.  But the Sabbath day, the observance of which God commanded, was our Saturday.  Yet who among either [Roman] Catholics or Protestants, except a sect or two, like the ‘Seventh Day Baptists,’ ever keep that commandment now? None.  Why is this?  The Bible, which Protestants claim to obey exclusively, gives no authorization for the substitution of the first day of the week for the seventh.  On what authority, therefore, have they done so?  Plainly on the authority of that very [Roman] Catholic Church which they abandoned, and whose traditions they condemn.’ – John L. Stoddard, Rebuilding a Lost Faith, new edition, p. 80. (P. J. Kenedy and Sons, New York City:  1922.)

            “The first positive command in the Decalogue is to ‘remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy,’ and this precept was enforced by the Jews for thousands of years.  But the Sabbath day, the observance of which God commanded, was our Saturday.  Yet who among either Catholics or Protestants, except a sect or two, like the Seventh Day Baptists, ever keep that commandment now?  None.  Why is this?  The Bible, which Protestants claim to obey exclusively, gives no authorization for the substitution of the first day of the week for the seventh.  On what authority, therefore, have they done so?  Plainly on the authority of that very Catholic Church which they abandoned, and whose traditions they condemn.” –John L. Stoddard, Rebuilding a Lost Faith, Page. 1826

Kannon und Tradition
CI000109 Kanon und Tradition 1859

No.  72.  SUBJECT: TRADITION AND THE SABBATH AT THE COUNCIL OF TRENT—Holtzmann, Heinrich Julius (German nineteenth century authority on tradition in the Church), Kanon und Tradition (1859).  He states that at the Council of Trent the change from Sabbath to Sunday was argued as evidence of the authority of the church’s tradition.  A translation of the passage, from the German reads:  “at last at the final opening {of the council] on January 18, 1562, they rid themselves of all hesitation; the Archbishop of Reggio made an address in which he declared openly that tradition was elevated above the Scripture.  On this account the authority of the Church could not al all [he said] be tied to the authority of Scripture, because the former had, not according to the ordinance of Christ, but on its own authority, changed circumcision into baptism, and the Sabbath into Sunday. With this the last illusion was dispelled and clarified, that tradition represented not antiquity, but continuing inspiration.’

CI000109a Kanon und Tradition 1859
11.  Sabbatarians Most Logical.“It is in the tradition of the Christian Church that we find definite authority for applying the prescriptions of the third commandment to our Sunday.  Hence those of our countrymen who claim to guide themselves by ‘the Bible only,’ and who reject ecclesiastical tradition unless backed by unmistakable biblical testimonies, should by rights subscribe their names to that somewhat obscure sect known as ‘Sabbatarians,’ who, as Bible Christians, more logically retain the old day of rest, and occasionally get into trouble with the police when caught employing labor on Sundays.  Moreover, the Bible Protestant has no ‘warranty in Scripture’ for convicting of sin those who, to his way of thinking, profane the sacredness of Sunday.”—F. M. de Zulueta, S. J., Letters on Christian Doctrine (first series), third edition, Vol. 1, p. 145. “Revised in accordance with the new codex of canon law by h. Davis, S. J.”  (Burns, Oates, and Washbourne, Ltd., London: 1919.)

The Liberal Illusion

CI000114 The Liberal Illusion L Veuillot 1939
In 1939, the National Catholic Welfare Conference in Washington D. C. published a book translated out of the French, The Liberal Illusion by Louis veuillot.  It stated:  
“When the time comes and men realize that the social edifice must be rebuilt according to eternal standards, be it tomorrow, or be it centuries from now, the Catholics will arrange things to suit said standards. . . .  They will make obligatory the religious observance of Sunday on behalf of the whole of society and for its own good, revoking the permit for free-thinkers and Jews to celebrate, “incognito,’ Monday or Saturday on their own account.  Those whom this may annoy, will have to put up with this annoyance.  Respect will not be refused to the Creator nor repose to the creature simply for the sake of humoring certain maniacs, whose phrenetic condition causes them stupidly an insolently to block the will of the whole people. .. In a word, Catholic society will be Catholic and the dissenters whom it will tolerate will know its charity, but will not be allowed to disrupt its unity.” (pp. 63, 64)

God blessed the seventh day & rested
CI000115 Manual Christian Doctrine M H Gill & Son
Answer:  The Catholic Church has always felt that it had the power to change God’s law, even to the changing of the day of worship.  What is more interesting is that most of the Protestant churches appear to go along with the Church of Rome:

“Q. How do you prove that the Church has power to command feasts and holy-   days?

“A. By this very act of changing the Sabbath into the Sunday, which is admitted by Protestants, and therefore they contradict themselves by keeping Sunday so strictly, and breaking most other Feasts commanded by the same Church.”

“Q. How do you prove that?

“A. Because by keeping Sunday they acknowledge the power of the Church to ordain Feasts and to command them under sin, and by not keeping the remainder, equally commanded by her, they deny in fact the same power.”  -- Douay Catechism (1649), quoted in Daniel Ferris, Manual of Christian Doctrine:  or Catholic Belief and Practice (Dublin: M. H. Gill & Son, Ltd, 1916), pp. 67, 68.

Catholic information for non-Catholics
CI000118 Our Sunday Visitor October 1, 1944

 Sunday Observance Explained

The Roman Catholic journal Our Sunday Visitor (October 1) Contains some information for non-Catholics on the source of Sunday observance:  “Sabbath day observance?  That was all right in Old Testament times, but were different.  Were followers of Jesus Christ.  We’ve made a break with the Jewish religion.  Theirs is the old law; ours is the new.  “The apostles knew that and that’s the very reason they decided to from the Sabbath to Sunday.  No, you won’t find much about it in the New Testament—hardly any mention of Sunday as the Lord’s day.  It’s mostly a part of what we Catholics call tradition, that body of customs and teachings brought down to us from the time of the apostles, and it’s as much a part of God’s word as the Holy Bible.  Everyone admits that—everyone who works on the Sabbath and goes to church on Sunday. “Mind you, God commanded Moses to keep Saturday holy.  The Jews of today, with no faith in Jesus, are absolutely logical in clinging to the Sabbath.  But our apostles, believing firmly that Jesus was God and
that He had given them the power to loose and bind in heaven and on earth, decided to break with the age-old law—a matter in which they had complete authority.’

Sunday is first day of  the week
CI000119 Our Sunday Vistor June 1 1941          
“The Sabbath day or Saturday was instituted by God as the day of rest in commemoration of the Bible story of creation, in which it says that on the seventh day God rested.  In the Christian dispensation the Sunday takes the place of the Jewish Sabbath.  There is no positive and direct reference to this change in the Bible though we may indirectly gather it from certain texts.  If the Protestant be logical in his contention that the Bible is the only guide of faith he should continue to observe the Sabbath as the day dedicated to God and not the Sunday.” – “Our Sunday Visitor June 1, 1941

Bible is sole rule of faith in theory

CI000120c Our Sunday Visitor March 26, 1916, there is given an imaginary conversation between a Catholic and a Protestant on the question of the Bible’s being the sole rule of faith.  "The Catholic inquires, “Is the Bible the rule or guide of Protestants for observing Sunday?”  The answer given by the Protestant is, “No, I believe the Seventh-day Adventists are the only ones to follow the Bible in the matter of Sabbath observance.”

“Many non-Catholics criticize the Catholic Church because some of her doctrine and practices are learned by Tradition.  But it does not occur to them that their own hostile attitude toward the Church is based altogether on a false ‘tradition.’  In fact, much of Protestant doctrine and practice is based on Catholic tradition, such as the observance of Sunday….the date for the celebration of Christmas and Easter and Pentecost, and many other things.” October 26, 1947.

The American Jesuit

CI000141 The Jesuit T. J. Campbell says:

“As the establishment of the Society of Jesus coincided with the Protestant Reformation the efforts of the first Jesuits were naturally directed to combat that movement.  Under the guidance of Canisius so much success attended their work in Germany and other northern nations, that, according to Macaulay, Protestantism was effectually checked.  In England . . .  the Jesuits stopped at no danger,  . . . and what they did there was repeated in other parts of the world.   . .  The Jesuits were to be found under every disguise, in every country.  “Their history is marked by ceaseless activity in launching new schemes for the spread of the Catholic faith.  “They have been expelled over and over again from almost every Catholic country in Europe, always, however, coming back again to renew their work when the storm had subsided; and this fact has been adduced as a proof that there is something iniquitous in the very nature of the organization.”—The Encyclopedia Americana, sixteen-volume edition, Vol. IX, art. “Jesuits.” 1904.

Letters from Father T. Enright
CI000142 T Enright Jan 11 1892
“The writer wrote to Arch bishop Ryan, stating Father Enright’s position, and received the following reply:  
 Mr. E. E. Franke:  O course Father Enright is correct.  There is not a word in the New Testament about Christ’s changing the day.  On the contrary, he always observed the Sabbath, the seventh day.  Consult any Catholic work that has a chapter on tradition, and you will find what you need.  The church alone is authority for the transfer from Saturday to Sunday.

                                                                  Truly yours,

                                                              I.  Hoostman, Chancellor.      

             Jan. 11, 1892

            Dear Friend: -- Your letter reached me only a few days ago.  The paper you speak of I have not seen.  My words were, I have repeatedly offered $1,000 to any one who can prove to me by the Bible alone that I am bound to keep Sunday holy.  There is no such law in the Bible.  It is a law of the holy Catholic Church alone.  The Bible says, Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day.  THE CATHOLIC CHURCH says, ‘No!  By my Divine power I abolish the Sabbath day and command you to keep holy the first day of the week.’  And lo!  The entire civilized world bows down in reverent obedience to the command of the holy Catholic Church.  Excuse delay in answering.

                                                                                    Yours respectfully,

Letters from father T Enright befor 1892
CI000143  T Enright before 1892

             Some time ago I read a rabid challenge by Priest Enright, of Kansas City, Missouri.  I had no reason to disbelieve that it was not genuine, but always desiring to things first-handed, I wrote to Mr. Enright and asked him if he had offered the money it was reported he had for the proof that the observance of Sunday could by proved from the Bible.  I received in reply an autograph letter from him which I have and from which I will read.  He says:

  

Before 1892

“Dear Sir:

            “Your note received.  I have offered and still offer $1,000 to any one who can prove to me from the Bible alone that I am bound under pain of grievous sin to keep Sunday holy.  We keep Sunday in obedience to the laws of the Catholic Church.  The Church received from Christ the founder, the power to make laws binding in conscience.  All Protestants obey, not the Bible, but the Holy Catholic Church alone.  Those Protestants who keep Christmas, Easter, etc., (those who receive the writings of St. Luke and St. Mark as inspired) do so in obedience to the Catholic Church.”

Then he closes with this statement:   

            “Pray and study.  As long as you honestly seek the truth, I shall be glad to help you.

 

                                                            “Yours respectfully,

                                                                                   “T. Enright.”

Lecture by T Enright
CI000145a T Enright C SS R  in a lecture delivered in 1893

            “There is but one church on the face of the earth which has the power, or claims power, to make laws binding on the conscience, biding before God, binding under penalty of hell-fire.  For instance, the institution of Sunday.  What right has any other church to keep this day?  You answer by virtue of the third commandment [the Papacy changed the fourth commandment and called it the third], which says, ‘Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day.”  But Sunday is not the Sabbath.  Any schoolboy knows that Sunday is the first day of the week.  I have repeatedly offered one thousand dollars to anyone who will prove by the Bible alone that Sunday is the day we are bound to keep, and no one has called for the money.  It was the holy Catholic Church that changed the day of rest from Saturday, the seventh day, to Sunday, the first day of the week.” – T. ENRIGHT, C.S.S.R., in a lecture delivered in 1893.

The Legend of the Phoenix

CI000147 The Catholic Educational Review Mar 1921           
In her work of Christianizing the work the [Roman Catholic] Church adapts herself as far as possible to her surroundings.  She does not reject completely the customs and institutions of a people into whose land she carries the good tidings, but endeavors to bring these institutions into harmony with her own doctrines. . .  So it comes that we find the early writers of the church retaining in substance many of the old heathen myths and legends, changing them only to invest them with a Christian atmosphere.—Lawrence N. Leinheuser, M. A., in “Legend of the Phoenix,” The Catholic Education Review (Washington, D. C.), March, 1921.

The Observance of Sunday & Civil Laws for its Enforcement

CI000150 The American Catholic Quarterly Review Jan 1883
“The Sunday, as a day of the week set apart for the obligatory public worship of Almighty God, to be sanctified by suspension of all servile labor, trade, and worldly avocations, and by exercises of devotion, is purely a creation of the Catholic Church.”  “Nothing in the New Testament forbids work, travel, trade, amusement, on the first day of the week.  There is nothing which implies such a prohibition.  The day, as one especially set apart, had no authority but that of the Catholic Church;  the laws requiring its observance were passed to enforce decrees of councils of the Catholic Church.”  “For ages all Christian nations looked to the Catholic Church, and, as we have seen, the various states enforce by law her ordinances as to worship and cessation of labor on Sunday.  Protestantism, in discarding the authority of the church, had no good reason for its Sunday theory, and ought, logically, to keep Saturday as the Sabbath, with the Jews and Seventh Day Baptists.  For their present practice, Protestants in general have no authority but that of a church which they disown.” –The American Catholic Quarterly Review, Jan., 1883.

The official newspaper of the Cleveland Diocese says:

“By what authority did the Church change the observance of the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday? “The Church changed the observance of the Sabbath to Sunday by right of the divine, infallible authority given to her by her Founder, Jesus Christ.  The Protestant, claiming the Bible to be the only guide of faith, has no warrant for observing Sunday.  In this matter the Seventh Day Adventist is the only consistent Protestant.  Sunday as the day of rest to honor our Lord’s Resurrection dates to Apostolic times and was so established, among other reasons, to mark off the Jew from the Christian.  St. Justin the Martyr, speaks of it in his Apologies.” – The Catholic Universe Bulletin, Aug. 14, 1942, p. 4.

Worse than Murder to missMass ,or eat meat on Friday
CI000189a The Spokesman Review Apr 18 1913

A Papal Claim:  Rev. Geo. Mahoney, in lecture published in “Spokesman Review” of April 18, 1913.  – Quoting:  “If the precepts of the church are not kept the children can not hop to be saved, for God punishes more severely the disobedience of the rules of the church than He does the transgression of His own Commandments.”

“It is the experience of every priest that it is harder to seek repentance for those who break the precepts of the church than for those who break the commandments.  It is easier to get forgiveness for one who commits murder than for one who misses mass on Sunday or eats meat on Friday.”  “It was the Catholic Christ that made the law to keep Sunday.  The Bible does not say keep Sunday holy.  But the Catholic Church made the law and she knows best how to direct the obedience of Sunday.”  “If any Catholic violates the law of coming to mass on Sunday he commits mortal sin unless he is ill, too far from church, or is compelled to make a journey which prevents his attendance at mass.”

The Roman Catholic publication, the Western Watchman, under date of June 10, 1915, gives an address by the Reverend D. S. Phelan, in which he said:  “I never invite an angel down from heaven to hear mass here.  This is not the place for angels.  The only person in heaven I ever ask to come down here is Jesus Christ, and Him I command to come down.  He has to come when I bid Him.  I took bread in my fingers this morning and said:  ‘This is the body and blood of Christ,’ (Heb 7:27 & Rom 6:10) and He had to come down.  This is one of the things he must do.  He must come down every time I say mass at my bidding. . . .  I do it in obedience, reverence, homage, and adoration, but I do it, and when I do it, Christ must obey.”

The Story of an Ill Starred Union

CI000195 Western Watchman (Roman Catholic) Dec 16 1909 D S Phelan “During the two thousand years the Church has been on this earth, she has warred with nearly every government in the world.  The world is full of their ruins.  Their thrones have toppled over and fallen, their dynasties have come to dust.  And the government in the world today will meet the same fate if they challenge the hostility of the Church of God.  She remains; she is today what she two thousand years ago; she is today what she was in the days of Justinian the Great (she is today what she was in the days of Barbarossa); she is today what she was during the Middle Ages; she is today what she was during the sixteenth century; she is the same invincible Church of God.  God help the state that attacks her; God help the king that provokes her hostility.”  From a sermon preached on Sunday, December 12, 1909, by Rev. D. S. Phelan, LL.D, printed in the Western Watchman (Roman Catholic) December 16, 1909.

Philip Carrington, an Episcopal, says:  “The Bible commandment says on the seventh day thou shalt rest.  That is Saturday! Nowhere in the Bible is it laid down that worship should be done on Sunday.” – “Toronto Daily Star,” Oct. 26, 1949.

“Our Lord rose from the dead on the first day of the week,” said Father Hourigan of the Jesuit Seminary.  “That is why the Church changed the day of obligation from the seventh day to the first day of the week.  The Anglican and other Protestant denominations retained that tradition when the Reformation came along.” – Toronto Daily Star, Oct. 26, 1949.

America the Church's Land of promise
CI000199 Western Watchman D S  Pheland Oct 28 1908          
In an editorial entitled “America, the Church’s Land of Promise,” priest D.S. Phelan, editor of the Western Watchman (St. Louis, Mo.), said, under date of Oct. 29, 1908:--
“His Holiness is enthusiastic over America, especially the United States.  To begin with, he likes our government, and our public officials, with whom he has come into official relations.  It must be confessed that the United States has treated Rome well whenever we had an opportunity. . . . Despoiled and persecuted in countries called Catholic, hampered and thwarted by Protestant governments, the church is given fair play and even-handed justice only in the United States.  No wonder, then, the Holy Father feels kindly toward us as a nation . . . . . He is amazed at our material and spiritual progress.  The church is making advances only in America. . . . The outlook across the water is very discouraging to any but those of the strongest faith.  In the midst of the gloom, abandoned by those who should stand by him in his agony, the Holy Father appeals to this country for comfort and support.  And he appeals not in vain.  American shoulders are to-day holding up the Vatican.  Its revenues are largely derived from this country; and what is now a steady stream will soon be and on-flowing river
