CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Allen Vigneron of Detroit has issued a pastoral note calling for more careful observance of the Sunday Sabbath. The archdiocese announced that as part of the effort, sporting events organized by Catholic groups will not be held on Sunday. The archbishop wrote that “we are committed to setting aside this day as much as possible for God-centered pursuits.”

    Your headline for this article is misleading. Nowhere in the article is the word "Sabbath" to be found. Sources cited in the article speak as Catholics and accordingly refer to Sunday as the "Lord's Day," or as Cardinal Ratzinger emphasized in his "Communio" article some 30 odd years ago which distinguished Sunday from the day of the Sabbath: "the day of the Lord." I commend Archbishop Vigneron for his stellar guidance in implementation of the new evangelization.
