Catholic Church and Trade Unions Form ‘Holy Alliance’ to Enforce Sunday Observance

March 7, 2012 | From theTrumpet.com

Pope Benedict

Trade unions across Europe held small protests March 4 calling for governments to force companies and shops to shut on Sunday, as Catholic preachers supported the campaign from the pulpit.

Religious groups and trade unions, organized under the banner of the European Sunday Alliance, helped organize protests in 12 EU countries.

A lot of the activity took place in Italy, where a law allowing businesses to choose their own opening hours was only passed in December. The leader of Italy’s biggest trade union, the Italian General Confederation of Labor, joined protesters outside a shopping center in Rome.

Meanwhile, the newspaper of the Italian bishops’ conference, Avvenire, hailed a new “holy alliance” between the Catholic community and trade unions.

“We believe that all citizens of the European Union are entitled to benefit from decent working hours that, as a matter of principle, exclude working late evenings, nights, public holidays and Sundays,” wrote the European Sunday Alliance. “Only essential services should operate on Sundays.”

The idea of a government enforcing a day of rest is disquieting. But when you consider the history—that many were burnt at the stake for refusing to worship on a Sunday—it becomes frightening. The Catholic Church has consistently tried to go above the heads of individual nations to try to get Sunday worship enforced at the European level. Watch for the Catholic Church to try to force Sunday observance on all in Europe.

  1. Yes–the time is now—-Revelations 13, 14, is here! Revelations 17 describes this church—and the Roman power has risen once again to go against God’s commandments and God’s people!
    I am ready to see my true Messiah Yahweh and Yeshua and the Holy Ghost as ONE! Yeshua is coming for his bride soon—and NO one will be able to fight Yahweh and all his fighting Holy angels!
    It’s time to repent and worship the God who made you and follow his commandments including the 4th commandment stated in Genesis: 2:-3

  2. I think it would be nice to have one day that everyone is off. But to have a gov’t control you, God forbid. That is why I love my America. There are some businesses and work fields that can’t shut down. For instances: hospitals, electric generation plants (you need electricity), firemen, policemen and more. Gov’t and Religion should not control people. There are civil laws to abide. But religion should not own you. Even our Creator gave us a will to choose.

  3. The Beast and the smokescreen…. The true sabbath buried beneath the beasts false Calendar system (Gregorian) and the false Worship days, Sunday and Saturday….. Time is near for final 7 trumpets of Yahuwah to sound and the end of earth’s History.

  4. Those understanding the sign of the sabbath and the seal of the Holy Spirit causes us to obey Elohim/the Almighty One rather than man following the example of YaHU’SHUA the Messiah having his name in our mind and obedience to the Father’s commandments and as he called them “my commandments” Yachanon/John 14:15-21 also following Apostle Paul’s example as he follows Messiah, 1Corinthians 11:1, know this is the mark of the beast to think like the Beast and do what the Beast says.

  5. YHWH made the seventh day for rest, hallowed it, set His seal on it. It is a holy rest and one of His commandments which I will keep. Worship is for everyday and in spirit and truth. The law of God supersedes all man’s made up laws. The Romans changed the Sabbath from Saturday to the first day because “want nothing to do with the filthy Jews” as written in their dioceses.

  6. This article shows just how close we are to the Second Coming of Jesus. It is getting very close and this is the proof. People have very little left to make their stand for Jesus. It wont be too long before it is too late.

  7. I left the protestant church about 10 years ago because I believe Scripture tells us to observe the Shabbat, to rest on the LAST day of the week, the seventh. In coming to that decision, I found that the catholic church was the one who made the change to the FIRST day of the week. I have NEVER been able to figure out how “BIBLE BELIEVERS” A) could not see the Shabbat was still in effect and B) why “BIBLE BELIEVERS” would continue to follow the pope.

    So now that we see the pope attempting to force sundays on the world, what is the church going to do.
    AGREE? again, I simply STAGGER at the thought of the protestant church coming along side the pope.
    DISAGREE? How can they? The entire protestant way of life surrounds sundays. So does their theology. One of the most common things I heard as I started to observe the Shabbat was that I was no longer “under grace” since I was trying to EARN my way into heaven”

    Face it people, the protestant church is still operating like its older catholic brother: both celebrate sunday christmas, easter DESPITE Scripture which points to honoring the Shabbat which the CREATOR ordained and the Feast of the CREATOR outlined in Lev.

  8. The trades unions will be one of the agencies that will bring upon this earth a time of trouble such as has not been since the world began.Through the working of monopolies and the results of labor unions and strikes, conditions of life in the city are constantly becoming more and more difficult.Serious troubles are before us, and for many families moving out of the cities will become a necessity.

  12. May the Lord God, Lord of the Sabbath seal us and give us strength to face the perilous times that is set before us. Unavoidable as prophecy has foretold our prayer and plea is that the Lord plants our feet on higher ground so we could stand the trying times and I feel sorry for many christians who have fled their countries for various reasons and are in Europe. They will be the first victims. Africa too which relies on EU aid for survival. We are up for a torrid time.

    May God help us. The time is here, not near.

  13. Sunday is the mark of the Beast, the Seventh Day (Saturday) is the mark of the Lord.

    Gen. 2:3, “And God blessed the SEVENTH DAY, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.” (KJV)

    Ex. 16:30, “So the people rested on the seventh day.” (KJV)

    Ex. 20:10, “But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates.” (KJV)

    Heb. 4:3-6, “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief” (KJV)

    Rom. 3:31, “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” (KJV)

    1 John 2:3-4, “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” (KJV)

    Rev 12:17, “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” (KJV)

    Rev. 17:13, “These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” (KJV)

    Rev. 14:12, “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” (KJV)

    Rev. 22:14, “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” (KJV)
