THE THIRD COMMANDMENT: 

REMEMBER TO KEEP HOLY THE 

LORD'S DAY

450. Why did God “bless the Sabbath day 

and declare it sacred” (Exodus 20:11)?

God did so because on the Sabbath day one 
remembers God’s rest on the seventh day of 
creation,  and  also  the  liberation  of 
Israel  from  slavery  in  Egypt  and  the 
Covenant  which  God  sealed  with  his 
people.

451. How did Jesus act in regard to the 

Sabbath?

Jesus  recognized  the  holiness  of  the 
Sabbath  day  and  with  divine  authority  he 
gave  this  law  its  authentic  interpretation: 
“The  Sabbath  was  made  for  man,  and  not 
man for the sabbath” (Mark 2:27).

452. For what reason has the Sabbath 

been changed to Sunday for Christians?

The reason is because Sunday is the day of 
the Resurrection of Christ. As “the first day 
of the week” (Mark 16:2) it recalls the first 
creation;  and  as  the  “eighth  day”,  which 
follows  the  sabbath,  it  symbolizes  the  new 
creation  ushered  in  by  the  Resurrection  of 
Christ.  Thus,  it  has  become  for  Christians 
the first of all days and of all feasts. It is the 
day  of  the  Lord  in  which  he  with  his 
Passover  fulfilled  the  spiritual  truth  of  the 
Jewish  Sabbath  and  proclaimed  man’s 
eternal rest in God.

453. How does one keep Sunday holy?

Christians  keep  Sunday  and  other  days  of 
obligation  holy  by  participating  in  the 
Eucharist  of  the  Lord  and  by  refraining 
from those activities which impede the 

worship of God and disturb the joy proper 
to  the  day  of  the  Lord  or  the  necessary 
relaxation of mind and body. Activities are 
allowed  on  the  Sabbath  which  are  bound 
up  with  family  needs  or  with  important 
social  service,  provided  that  they  do  not 
lead  to  habits  prejudicial  to  the  holiness  of 
Sunday, to family life and to health.

454. Why is the civil recognition of 

Sunday as a feast day important?

It is important so that all might be given the 
real  possibility  of  enjoying  sufficient  rest 
and  leisure  to  take  care  of  their  religious, 
familial,  cultural  and  social  lives.  It  is 
important  also  to  have  an  opportune  time 
for meditation, for reflection, for silence, for 
study, and a time to dedicate to good works, 
particularly for the sick and for the elderly.

SAINT OF THE WEEK

Memorial:

 St Charles Lwanga And Companions, 

Martyrs  —  Wednesday,  June  3:  One  of  22 
Ugandan  martyrs,  Charles  Lwanga  is  the 
patron of youth and Catholic action in most of 
tropical  Africa. 

He protected his 

fellow  pages 

(aged  13  to  30) 

f r o m 

t h e 

h o m o s e x u a l 

demands  of  the 

Bagandan  ruler, 

Mwanga,  and 

encouraged  and 

instructed  them 

in  the  Catholic 

faith during their imprisonment for refusing the 
ruler’s demands.

For  his  own  unwillingness  to  submit  to  the 
immoral  acts  and  his  efforts  to  safeguard  the 
faith  of  his  friends,  Charles  was  burned  to 
death  at  Namugongo  on  June  3,  1886,  by 
Mwanga’s order.

Charles first learned of Christ’s teachings from 
two  retainers  in  the  court  of  Chief 
Mawulugungu.  While  a  catechumen,  he 
entered  the  royal  household  as  assistant  to 
Joseph Mukaso, head of the court pages.

On  the  night  of  Mukaso’s  martyrdom  for 
encouraging  the  African  youths  to  resist 
Mwanga,  Charles  requested  and  received 
Baptism. Imprisoned with his friends, Charles’s 
courage  and  belief  in  God  inspired  them  to 
remain chaste and faithful.

When  Pope  Paul  VI  canonized  these  22 
martyrs on October 18, 1964, he referred to the 
Anglican pages martyred for the same reason.

Comment: 

Like  Charles  Lwanga,  we  are  all 

teachers  and  witnesses  to  Christian  living  by 
the examples of our own lives. We are all called 
upon  to  spread  the  word  of  God,  whether  by 
word  or  deed.  By  remaining  courageous  and 
unshakable  in  our  faith  during  times  of  great 
moral  and  physical  temptation,  we  live  as 
Christ lived.

Quote: 

On  his  African  tour  in  1969,  Pope  Paul 

VI told 22 young Ugandan converts that "being 
a  Christian  is  a  fine  thing  but  not  always  an 
easy one."

SMILE

Pope St John XXIII’s Humour

Visiting a hospital he asked a boy what he 

wanted to be when he grew up. The boy 

said either a policeman or a pope. "I would 

go in for the police if I were you," the Holy 

Father said. "Anyone can become a pope, 

look at me!”

When a cardinal complained that a rise in 

Vatican salaries meant a particular usher 
earned as much as the cardinal, the pope 
remarked: "That usher has 10 children; I 

hope the cardinal doesn’t."

When he went to visit a friend at the 

nearby Hospital of the Holy Spirit in the 

evening, the nun answering the door said: 

"Holy Father, I'm the mother superior of 

the Holy Spirit." He replied: "Lucky you! 

What a job! I'm just the 'servant of the 

servants of God.’"

Not long after he was elected pope, St 

John was walking in the streets of Rome. A 

woman passed him and said to her friend, 

"My God, he's so fat!" Overhearing what 

she said, he turned around and replied, 

"Madame, I trust you understand that the 

papal conclave is not exactly a beauty 

contest.”

When he was cardinal and patriarch of 

Venice, the future pope was talking with a 

wealthy city resident and told him, "You 

and I have one thing in common: money. 

You have a lot and I have nothing at all. 

The difference is I don't care about it.”

In reply to a reporter who asked, "How 

many people work in the Vatican?", he 

reportedly said: "About half of them.”

St John, as pope—on going to bed at night

—when he was worried about the Church 

and the afflictions with which it was 

struggling, wrote in his diary, “Lord, it’s 

your Church, I am going to sleep”!

Jesus

“The feast of the Most Holy Trinity may well be 
regarded as the Church's Te Deum of gratitude 
over  all  the  blessings  of  the  Christmas  and 
Easter seasons; for this mystery is a synthesis of 
Christmas,  Epiphany,  Easter,  Ascension  and 
Pentecost.  This  feast,  which  falls  on  the  first 
Sunday  after  Pentecost,  should  make  us 
mindful  that  actually  every  Sunday  is  devoted 
to  the  honor  of  the  Most  Holy  Trinity,  that 
every  Sunday  is  sanctified  and  consecrated  to 
the triune God. Sunday after Sunday we should 
recall in a spirit of gratitude the gifts which the 
Blessed  Trinity  is  bestowing  upon  us.  The 
Father created and predestined us; on the first 
day of the week He began the work of creation. 
The  Son  redeemed  us;  Sunday  is  the  ‘Day  of 
the  Lord’,  the  day  of  His  resurrection.  The 
Holy  Spirit  sanctified  us,  made  us  His  temple; 
on Sunday the Holy Spirit descended upon the 
infant Church. Sunday, therefore, is the day of 
the Most Holy Trinity.”

- From The Church's Year of Grace, Pius Parsch

Commentary  1  –  Mission  mandate  grounded  in  the 
resurrection
“Because  we  have  heard  the  reading  from 
Matthew’s  gospel  many  times,  we  could  easily 
overlook  how  many  themes  it  expresses  so 
simply  and  profoundly.  The  mission  of  the 
Apostles is grounded in their resurrection faith. 
‘Some  hesitated’  still,  Matthew  reports, 
reminding us and reassuring us as we know the 
challenge  faith  brings.  The  Lord,  the  Word  of 
God,  who  commissions  the  Apostles,  shares  in 
the  divine  glory  and  authority  of  the  God  of 
Israel’s faith, which have been ‘given’ to him by 
his  Father:  ‘All  authority  in  heaven  and  on 
earth has been given to me. Go therefore, make 
disciples of all the nations, and know that I am 
with you to the end of time’.”

“BECAUSE GOD IS REAL”

by Peter Kreeft

Why Must We Die?

2.  How  do  we  know  there  is  life  after  death  at  all? 
Maybe it’s just a myth. There’s no proof of it. Nobody 
ever came back to tell us about it.

Not  true.  Somebody  did  come  back  to  tell  us 
about  it.  His  name  is  Jesus.  He  died  and  rose 
from  the  dead.  If  that’s  not  true,  our  whole 
religion is a lie.

Many ordinary people have caught glimpses of 
the  next  world  in  near-death  experiences. 
Millions  of  people,  in  fact.  They  were  not  all 
dreaming  or  hallucinating  or  making  it  up. 
They were certain. They saw it.

And  there  are  good  logical  arguments  for  life 
after  death  too.  Some  people  don’t  need  these 
arguments;  they  “just  know”,  intuitively, 
innately.  But  other  people  have  doubts, 
consciously  or  unconsciously,  and  sometimes 
these  doubts  are  serous  worries.  Good 
argument can strengthen your faith if it is weak 
and  full  of  doubts.  And  even  if  you  don’t 
personally need these proofs, it’s good to know 
them so that you can give them to other people 
who  do  need  them  because  they  do  have 
doubts.

Argument from authority

. This not a proof but it is 

a  strong  clue.  The  vast  majority  of  all  people 
who  have  ever  lived,  in  all  nations,  cultures, 
races,  and  religions  have  believed  in  life  after 
death.  Most  of  the  people  who  deny  it  are 
confined  to  one  or  two  centuries  (the  most 
recent centuries) and one civilization (our own 
modern  Western  post-Christian  materialistic 
civilization). And even there, such people are a 
small  minority.  The  vast  majority  of  the  sages, 
or  wise  men,  have  taught  it  through  the 
centuries.  All  the  religions  of  the  world  teach 
some form of it. Above all, Jesus clearly taught 
it. If all these people are wrong, then you have 
to be a snob, for only you and your very small 
circle of unbelievers are right while the rest of 
the  human  race,  including  the  best  and  wisest 

people  who  have  ever  lived,  have  all  been 
wrong about this crucial question. How likely is 
that?

We innately believe in life after death. Children 
have to be conditioned out of it, not into it. It is 
natural. That does not prove it is true, but it is 
certainly  a  clue.  You  have  to  distrust  human 
nature a lot to ignore this clue.

The  argument  from  desire

.  The  desire  to  conquer 

death  is  in  all  of  us.  We  all  find  death 
scandalous.  The  desire  for  immortality  is 
natural and universal (in all of us).

Every  single  one  of  our  other  desires  that  are 
natural and universal correspond to real things 
that  can  satisfy  them.  There  is  hunger—and 
there  is  food.  There  is  thirst—and  there  is 
drink. There is loneliness—and there is society. 
There  is  curiosity—and  there  is  knowledge. 
There is sexual desire—and there is sex. There 
is  tiredness—and  there  is  sleep.  There  is  the 
desire  for  beauty—and  there  is  beauty.  And 
there  is  the  desire  for  life  after  death—and 
there  is  no  such  thing?  Why  should  this  one 
innate  and  universal  desire,  the  deepest  one  of 
all,  be  the  only  exception?  If  there  is  no 
immortality, why do we naturally desire it? If a 
duck longs for water, it was designed to swim.

FAST & ABSTINENCE

During Lent

Catholics fast, and abstain from meat on Ash 

Wednesday and Good Friday. 

Fridays of the Year

It is a requirement of our Faith that we abstain 

from meat on all the Fridays of the year (except on 

Solemnities) in commemoration of our Saviour’s 

death. 

The fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. 

The required fast on Ash Wednesday and Good 

Friday involves eating only one full meal on those 

days. One or two smaller meals may be taken on 

those days, but may not total one full meal.  The 

required fast does not allow eating anything 

between meals. 

Abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday & 

Fridays of the Year

Abstinence on these days from meat does not 

intend the omission of eggs or dairy products.

Age Requirements

"All Catholics who have completed their 

fourteenth year are bound by the law of 

abstinence; all adults are bound by the law of fast 

up to the beginning of their sixtieth year.
