Why Do Jews and Christians Have Different Sabbath Days?

Fr. Mike Schmitz

Have you ever wondered why we celebrate the Sabbath on Sunday?

Have you asked yourself, what does Jesus mean when he says, “Think not that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets; I have come not to abolish them but to fulfil them.” (Mt 5:17) And why does this new covenant change the Sabbath? “…This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” (Lk. 22:20)

Today, Fr. Mike delves into the scriptural roots of the Sabbath and why we as Catholics celebrate it on Sunday and not Saturday as the Jewish people still do today.
