Keeping the Lord's Day: The Basis of Catholic Social Thought & Action

Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 2:40pm to 4:10pm

Keeping the Lord's Day: The Basis of Catholic Social Thought & ActionMichael J. Baxter (DePaul University) presents this World Catholicism Week session. Keeping the Lord's Day is the most fundamental and far-reaching principle of Catholic social teaching. In addition to the psychological and social benefits of setting aside time for leisure, it also affords us the time and space needed to contemplate the final end of our lives--seeing God--and to order our lives accordingly.

In this day and age of labor-saving devices, expanded information, and accelerated communication, there is nothing more necessary in working for justice and peace than contemplating how this work is already accomplished in the life, death, and resurrection of Christ, and to rest in this assurance each Sunday. Think it isn't possible to set aside time in our schedules for this? Think again.
