In Church, there is the union of minds, the accord of souls, and the prayers of the priest" (St. John Chrysostom).

  26. 26. The Third Commandment       “Keep holy the Sabbath.” God entrusted the Sabbath to Israel as a sign of His irrevocable covenant with them. The Sabbath is for the Lord; it is holy and set apart for the praise and worship of God. God‟s action is the model for human action; since God rested on the Sabbath, man too ought to rest from his labor and be refreshed in contemplation. The Sabbath brings everyday work to a halt. The Sabbath is a kind of „protest‟ or limit against the servitude of work and the worship of money.
