12. Do Catholic authorities acknowledge that there is no command in the Bible, for the sanctification of Sunday?

Answer

They do.
NOTE - "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.' - Cardinal Gibbons, in "The Faith of Our Fathers," edition 1892, page iii.
"Sunday is a Catholic institution, and its claims 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 25, 1900.
