“Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act... And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things.” –H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons. Nov. 11, 1895
“Sunday is our MARK of authority. . .the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact” –Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923.
“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 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!” –Fr Enright, C.S.S.R. History of the Sabbath, p. 802
“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.“ –Rev. Stephan Keenan, A Doctrinal Catechism, “On the Obedience Due to the Church,” chap. 2, p. 174. (Imprimatur, John Cardinal McCloskey, archbishop of New York.)
“Is not every Christian obliged to sanctify Sunday and to abstain on that day from unnecessary servile work? Is not the observance of this law among the most prominent of our sacred duties? 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.” -James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (1917 ed.), pp. 72, 73.
“Is not yet too late for Protestants to redeem themselves. Will they do it?… will they indeed take the written word only, the Scripture alone, as their sole authority and their sole standard? Or will they still hold the indefensible, self contradictory, and suicidal doctrine and practice of following the authority of the Catholic church and wear the SIGN of her authority? Will they keep the Sabbath of the Lord, the seventh day, according to Scripture? Or will they keep the Sunday according to the tradition of the Catholic church, – Rome‘s Challenge, (Why do Protestants keep Sunday?) page 31
Did you know they think to change Holy Days and Laws?
“The NEW LAW has it OWN SPIRIT…and its OWN FEASTS which have taken the place of those appointed in the LAW OF MOSES. If we would know the days to be observed, we must go to the Catholic church, not to the MOSAIC LAW.” Cardinal Gibbons states in the Catholic Catechism
Which are their Days of Authority? SUNday, ChristMASS, Easter, Halloween, St. Valentines, St. Patricks, Birthdays, New Years Day— the real first day of the year is in Spring! Yet they rule by their words and false Holy days. (Holidays) they have set up a counterfeit time for worship!!!
