keep Holy the Sabbath day
Some declare themselves 'spiritual but not religious' & see no need for the Church. Others adopt an attitude of dipping in occasionally as the mood strikes them. Still others adopt a causal attitude to attendance, going but feeling free not to for every trivial reason or none at all. None of these attitudes find warrant in Scripture or Tradition, where faithful Sunday by Sunday attendance is mandated. Reason also dictates the necessity of this; the sacraments are available only through the Church, and they are a vital channel of God's grace. And as social beings we need the support of others on our journey; and they, whom we are commanded to love, need our support and encouragement also.
