Sunday: Day of the Lord

Sunday Funday
 
In a 1998 apostolic letter to the Church, Dies Domini (“The Day of the Lord”), Pope St. John Paul II offers a few ways to understand how Christians should approach Sunday. “Sunday is the day of joy and the day of rest precisely because it is ‘the Lord’s Day’, the day of the Risen Lord.” (82). The popular cultural expression “Sunday Funday” is only truly possible because our joy and rest (and truly our “fun”) derive from our life in Jesus Christ.
