CHRISTIAN WORSHIP RESOURCES FOR THE CHILDREN’S SABBATH Catholic Liturgy for Children’s Sabbath This sample liturgy provides suggestions for incorporating the focus of the National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths® celebration into the standard liturgy for the 29th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year B, which falls on Octo until the Council of Nicea; 2) Sunday and the seventh-day Sab- bath both observed-from the Council of Nicea until perhaps a century or two later; and 3) only Sunday designated as a day of public worship-a practice still observed today (p. 31). Bishai is .

The initial statement in the Pope’s Apostolic Letter also reveals a remarkable alteration in the position of the Roman Catholic stance on Sunday worship. Unlike some Protestants who have sought to uphold Sunday-sanctity on the basis of apostolic tradition, this has not been the practice of Roman Catholics. Thus Sunday observance began in Rome in the middle of the second century A.D. Opposition to the religion of the Jews was a factor in the depreciation of their Sabbath and the gradual substitution of Sunday. 3. Pagan sun worship contributed to the development of Sunday veneration among Christians.

The Lord's Day in Christianity is generally Sunday, the principal day of communal is observed by most Christians as the weekly memorial of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is said in some of the canonical Gospels to have been witnessed alive from the dead early on the first day of the week.

The phrase appears in Rev. According to some sources. The TRUTH About SUNDAY OBSERVANCE From beginning to end of the Scriptures THERE IS NOT A SINGLE PASSAGE THAT WARRANTS THE TRANSFER OF WEEKLY PUBLIC WORSHIP FROM THE LAST DAY (SATURDAY) OF THE WEEK TO THE FIRST (SUNDAY)." Here is an interesting comment from Cardinal Gibbon's book, "Faith of Our Fathers," th.

All public shows, theatrical exhibitions, dancing, and amusements, were strictly prohibited. Similar decrees were also passed by various councils, requiring a faithful attendance upon public worship, and a strict observance of the day, by solemn suspension of all secular pursuits, and abstinence from amusements and vain recreations.

The Council. The Christian world has for some time observed two different days. On one hand, most Christians sincerely observe Sunday, the first day of the week, which they believe to be a memorial of Christ’s resurrection.

On the other hand, a large group of Christians, equally sincere, believe that the Bible recognizes only the seventh day as the Sabbath and nowhere affirms the sanctity of Sunday. In harmony with Arti the consistory shall summon the congregation to worship. Notice of this summons is ordinarily placed in the church bulletin the Sunday preceding the special day.

All of the elements of public worship ought to be a part of the observance. He was at best only half heathen, half Christian, who could seek to combine the worship of Christ with the worship of Apollo, having the name of the one and the figure of the other impressed upon his coins, and ordaining the observance of Sunday under the name of dies solis in his celebrated decree of March,though such, a combination was.

Sunday observance, and for the reason that while the Sabbath and Sabbath rest are woven into the warp and woof of Scripture, it is now seen, as it is admitted, 11 that we must go to later than apostolic times for the establishment of Sunday observance." Acts is one of the principal texts from which the observance of Sunday.

“Sunday is a Catholic institution and its claim 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 day of the week to the first.” Catholic Press, Sydney, Australia, August “It is well to remind.

Transition to Sunday Worship. Some Christian scholars believe the early church began meeting on Sundays soon after Christ rose from the dead, in honor of the Lord's resurrection, which took place on a Sunday, or the first day of the week. From beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to the first." Catholic Press, Aug.

25, "The Sabbath was Saturday, not Sunday. The Church altered the observance of the Sabbath to the observance of Sunday. In February, the Liturgy Teams for the a.m., and a.m. services met to discuss and decide on the worship liturgies for Lent. The a.m. worship service continues in the same format as it did for Lent The a.m.

liturgy will be from the Book of Common Prayer, Rite II, and use hymns from the Hymnal. observance of the first day of the week, and have, accordingly, turned to the observance of the seventh day. Considering that the observance of the seventh day is both unpopular and inconvenient, and that in some localities the laws are framed to make such observance as difficult as possible, it would be strange.

It will be noted that Sabbath observance, represented by the dotted Gnostic line, ceased among the Gnos­tics by the time of the Jewish war.

Then sun worship and Sunday observance of the thin "Sunday" line united with the Alexandrian philosophy, and the two continued on together from that time, as represented by the bottom line. The question of how Sunday, the first day of the week, replaced Saturday, the seventh day of the week, as the main day of Christian worship has received increasing attention in recent years.

One widely acclaimed study, for example, suggests that the weekly Christian Sunday arose from Sunday-evening communion. The observance of Sunday is rooted in weekly commemoration of Christ's resurrection since the Apostolic times.

Our Lord rose from the dead "on the first day of the week" (Mk. ), referred to by the Romans as the Day of the Sun (" Dies Solis"), hence the English name-Sunday. Since the Scripture presented Jesus as "the Sun of Justice" (Mal. ), St. Jerome (d. ) had no. Sunday is a Catholic institution and its claim 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 day of the week to the first.”—. The steps by which the practice of resting from labour on the Lord's day instead of on the Sabbath was established in Christendom and received civil as well as ecclesiastical sanction are dealt with under Sunday; it is enough to observe here that this practice is naturally and even necessarily connected with the religious observance of the Lord's day as a day of worship and religious.

Sunday a heathen festival from remote antiquity—Origin of the name-Reasons which induced the leaders of the church to adopt this festival—It was the day generally observed by the Gentiles in the first centuries of the Christian era—To have taken a different day would have been exceedingly inconvenient—They hoped to facilitate the conversion of the Gentiles.

Paul confirms this transfer of Sabbath observance from the last day of the week to Sunday saying that they met “on the first day of every week”. In Revelationthe apostle John calls Sunday “the Lord’s Day.” The transfer of the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday does not violate the Sabbath command, since what it requires is.

From beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to the first.” Catholic Press, Aug. 25, “The Sabbath was Saturday, not Sunday. The Church altered the observance of the Sabbath to the observance of Sunday.Sunday worship led people away from CHRIST and His Sabbath [Matthew ] and using political force, caused many to sin until it became universally established.

The observance of Sunday as a Christian institution had its origin in that "mystery of lawlessness" [lonians R.V.] which, even in Paul's day, had begun its work.
