You might have heard that Sunday, as the Sabbath, is a “day of rest.” But is that just, like, an honorary title? What does that actually mean for Christians? What should be doing—or not doing—on Sundays?

Today, Fr. Mike tells us why Christians are asked to rest from work on Sundays.

  1. Thank you Father. I am someone mostly confined to my home. I listen to The Bible in a year and other podcasts. I am so blessed to share in this adventure. I love hearing the Word of God and your insights are so meaningful for me. Thank you and all at Ascension Press again and again. May God continue to bless you and all there.
