Before I pose my questions, let me make it perfectly clear that I AM NOT being sarcastic, critical of anyones beliefs or anything else of a negative nature. I am simply putting forth a question as to how you are going to react to this latest ruling by the pope, ok? And I humbly ask for a correction and clarification if necessary. It was reported on the Compuserve Home Page this am that the Pope has declared Sunday a total day of devotion to God. It was reported that he has said Catholics cannot watch or go to sporting events and I assume work on Sundays or do anything that takes away from ones devotion to God. First of all, is this true? Secondly if it is, how do you as a good Catholic plan to respond? Are you going to give up these things and spend time in your Bible and other devotions or are you going to ignore it? Do you believe that this is divinely inspired? Thank you for your answers.
