Why do Christians replace the Sabbath with Sunday?

Why do Christians replace the Sabbath with Sunday?

 

The Third Commandment: Remember to Keep Holy the Lord's Day.

Christians replaced the celebration of the Sabbath with the celebration of Sunday because Jesus Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday. The “Lord’s Day”, however, does include elements of the Sabbath.

The Christian Sunday has three essential elements: (1) It recalls the creation of the world and communicates the festive splendor of God’s goodness to the passage of time. (2) It recalls the “eighth day of creation”, when the world was made new in Christ (thus a prayer from the Easter Vigil says: “You have wonderfully created man and even more wonderfully restored him.”). (3) It includes the theme of rest, not just to sanctify the interruption of work, but to point even now toward man’s eternal rest in God.

JOHN THE EVANGELIST (Bible Character Series)

JOHN THE EVANGELIST (Bible Character Series)

 

JOHN THE EVANGELIST is the son of Zebedee, and his mother's name was Salome. They lived on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. The brother of Saint John, probably considerably older, was Saint James. John and James followed the Baptist when he preached repentance in the wilderness of Jordan. There can be little doubt that the two disciples, whom Saint John does not name (John 1:35), who looked on Jesus "as he walked," when the Baptist exclaimed with prophetic perception, "Behold the Lamb of God!" were Andrew and John. They followed and asked the Lord where he dwelt. He bade them come and see, and they stayed with him all day. Of the subject of conversation that took place in this interview no record has come to us, but it was probably the starting-point of the entire devotion of heart and soul which lasted through the life of the Beloved Apostle.

Priest To Laity: Let The Holy Spirit Come Into Your Hearts

As the Church celebrates the solemnity of Pentecost Sunday, a Catholic priest called on the faithful to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit in building the kingdom of God. 

Rev. Fr. Lucio Rosaroso, also a police superintendent in the Philippine National Police, urged the laity to continuously help the Church in strengthening man’s relationship with God through evangelization and catechesis aided by the Holy Spirit. 

“The lay has a role in building the kingdom of God,” he said in his talk during the Katolikong Pinoy recollection held at the San Carlos Seminary. “The Holy Spirit is empowering the lay. Let us all continue in building His kingdom.”
