1. Origin The Sabbath refers to when scripture recalls creation: "For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it." On The Sabbath the Israelites would do as little work as possible because the Sabbath is a day of rest. God wanted the Israelites to do just this and rest and remember that this was the day that The Lord rested after creation.

2. Modern Application A. This commandment today means that we should avoid unnecessary work and attend mass.You if you cannot attend mass on Sunday you should try to attend it on Saturday.

B. Interview With My Father Q. Do you try to keep Holy the Sabbath day by attending mass on Sunday? A. Every week. I try to go to mass on Sunday with my family but if I can't I'll go on Saturday. Q. Do you avoid unnecessary work on the Sabbath day? A. Yes I do avoid work to go to mass. Q. Do you always remember to keep God in your mind of the Sabbath day? A. I try to keep God in my mind on the sabbath by making sure to go to mass on Sunday. B. Interview with my Father Q. Did you know that you should refrain from unnecessary work to celebrate the Sabbath day? A. Yes, I will usually leave work for a little to go to mass. Q. Did you know that it was a grave sin to not attend mass on a holy day of obligation? A. I did know that it was a sin but I did not know it was a grave sin. Q. Have you at times failed to attend mass on Sunday or Saturday? Was it because you had other Unnecessary work? A. I am usually able to attend mass every week wether it is on Saturday or Sunday.

C. My Thoughts This commandment means to me that we should recognize the sabbath as the lords day. We should not forget to go to mass. We should not give excuses to why we can't go to mass unless it is a legitimate or emergency issue. I believe that schools and businesses should give people necessary time to attend mass. Mass also is not very long it's usually about 30-60 minutes and I can't see why someone should be forced to not go to mass.I also think that at sometimes we forget to think about God on the sabbath and forget to go to mass. Some people say that their not "church people" which to me sounds ridiculous. Why would you think that going to church is not necessary when God clearly as far back as the Ten Commandments told us to keep the Sabbath day holy. Such excuses is what the third commandment is warning us against. God told us this is how we should live our life and it is our responsibility to follow his advice.

D. Quote "Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy" (Deut 5:12)
