The Continuity of the Catholic Church
Illustrations of the two methods readily suggest themselves, among them none being more informative than that of setting aside Sunday in place of Saturday as the day for rest and worship. One group of Christians, organised in the 18th century, decided after consulting the Scriptures that the designation of Sunday was unscriptural and therefore, unwarranted. They still hold to Saturday. Without doubt the testimony of the Scriptures suggests Saturday, the Sabbath, but there is another bit of evidence which should not have been ignored. It is that the change from Saturday to Sunday was made during the Apostolic generation. It is inconceivable that the Apostles would have acted without knowing the mind of the Master. Their decision was one of the first contributions made to the Tradition of the Church.
