WERE YOU AWARE?

The European Sunday Alliance has designated 4th March 2012 as a day of action for all its members and supporters to observe it as a European work-free Sunday. Follow the progress of such an initiative and please feel free to comment.

The "World Day for the Family" which was established by the United Nations[1] was held on May 15th 2012.  This year, the day was dedicated to what has been noted as two closely related topics: family and work.  Pope Benedict XVI made a plea for the "right to work and rest for families worldwide".

In his address the Pope stated that work should not hinder the family, but rather support and unite it, helping it to be open to life and to enter into a relationship with society and with the Church. I also hope that Sunday, the Lord's Day and weekly celebration of His Resurrection, will be a day of rest and an opportunity to strengthen family ties".

From a religious perspective the Pope's plea raises a number of important questions:

  1. What is the Lord's Day[2]
  2. How do we know which day is the Lord's Day
  3. What is the purpose of the Lord's Day

Your answers and comments on these points are most welcome and there will be a short paper posted soon giving our religious perspective on this call for a worldwide "Day of Rest".

We look forward to hearing from you.

The European Sunday Alliance have identified three key areas as reasons to have legislation for a 'Work Free Sunday': 1. health & safety at work  2. time for family and 3. better social cohesion.

The following aricle recognizes all of these points to be of great value to individuals and society at large, however this does not change the fact that to legislate Sunday as an official day of rest would still remain unlawful.  Click the following link to read the full article.
