The Catholic Church for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday.... The Christian Sabbath [Sunday] is therefore to this day [the] acknowledged offspring of the Catholic Church... without a word of remonstrance from the Protestant world." The Catholic Mirror, Sept. 23, 1893.

"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..." James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers, p. 111.

[Editorís Note: The following is a letter J L. Day wrote to the Pope asking about the change from Saturday to Sunday, and the reply which he received.]
