And here are various Catholic sources claiming the change was the doing of the Roman Catholic Church: Cardinal James Gibbons, (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108: But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible and observing the Sunday, in keeping Christmas and Easter, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope.The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify. Louis Gaston Segur, (September 23, 1893): 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changed the day from Saturday to Sunday...The Sabbath, which represented the completion of the first creation, has been replaced by Sunday which recalls the new creation, has been replaced by Sunday which recalls the new creation inaugurated by the Resurrection of Christ... Stephen Keenan, : 174: Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?In respecting religious liberty and the common good of all, Christians should seek recognition of Sundays and the Church’s holy days as legal holidays. Answer: 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 1st day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the 7th day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.: 472-473: "The third commandment is: ' Remember thou keep holy the Sabbath Day'..early church thought that the most effective way to drive home to them the arrival of the New Law of Christ was to transfer the traditions day of public worship to the Sunday."" data-location="" (February 5, 1950): Practically everything Protestants regard as essential or important they have received from the Catholic Church...The Catholic party appears to have felt itself the superior. Inspiration for these articles comes from Gideon and Hilda Hagstoz' Hegelian dialectic thinking is applied in many situations in world politics. At all events it was the first to take up arms." This article highlights quotes from historical and Catholic sources proving the Papacy's aggressive nature. Often the ordinary people are used as pawns in the game of Hegelian psychology played by those who pull the strings of world control. Section 2 Article 3 (1994): Sunday – fulfillment of the Sabbath. Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920: If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God is Saturday.
That observance remains as a reminder of the Mother Church from which the non-Catholic sects broke away—like a boy running away from home but still carrying in his pocket a picture of his mother or a lock of her hair.But if you desire to seek for Truth as for hidden treasure, and find herein something of that quality, we encourage you to make all haste to accept that Truth which is revealed to you by the Holy Spirit., that "No good government can exist without religion, and there can be no religion without an Inquisition, which is wisely designed for the promotion and protection of the true faith.” Read several authors' thoughts on papal Rome's history.The Bible says, “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy,” but the Catholic Church says, “No, keep the first day of the week,” and the whole world bows in obedience.Cardinal John Newman, (London: Basil Montague Pickering, 1878): 373: The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; votive offerings on recovery from illness; holy water; asylums; holydays and seasons…are all of pagan origin and sanctified by their adoption into the Church.The Adventists are the only body of Christians with the Bible as their teacher, who can find no warrant in its pages for the change of day from the seventh to the first.Hence their appellation, "Seventh-day Adventists." Catholic Priest T.Arthur Weigall, (New York: Putnam’s Sons, 1928): 145: The Church made a sacred day of Sunday…largely because it was the weekly festival of the sun; for it was a definite Christian policy to take over the pagan festivals endeared to the people by tradition, and to give them a Christian significance. O'Brien, But since Saturday, not Sunday, is specified in the Bible, isn't it curious that non-Catholics, who claim to take their religion directly from the Bible and not from the Church, observe Sunday instead of Saturday?Yes, of course, it is inconsistent; but this change was made about fifteen centuries before Protestantism was born, and by that time the custom was universally observed.This change from Saturday to Sunday Sabbath was prophesied about in Daniel 7.The great reformer Philipp Melanchton knew this truth five centuries ago.
