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.
