Sunday: Day of the Lord

“Therefore, if we wish to rediscover the full meaning of Sunday, we must rediscover this aspect of the life of faith. Certainly, Christian joy must mark the whole life, and not just one day of the week. But in virtue of its significance as the day of the Risen Lord, celebrating God’s word of creation and “new creation”, Sunday is the day of joy in a very special way, indeed the day most suitable for learning how to rejoice and to rediscover the true nature and deep roots of joy.” – -Pope St. John Paul II
