What does the Papacy set forth as the mark, or sign, of its power and authority?
"Question.-How prove you that the church hath power to command feasts and holy days?
"Answer.-By the very act of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants allow of ."-"Abridgment
of Christian Doctrine," by Rev. Henry Tuberville, D.D., page 58.
NOTES-In a letter written in November, 1895, Mr. H. F. Thomas, chancellor to Cardinal
Gibbons, replying to an inquiry as to whether the Catholic Church claims to have changed the Sabbath,
said: "Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change was her act. . . . and the act is a mark of her
ecclesiastical authority in religious things," For other statements concerning this, see pages 133, 136.
The true Sabbath being a sign of loyalty to the true God, it is but natural that the false Sabbath
should be regarded as a sign of allegiance to apostasy. And such we find to be the case.
