I was reading how many in the church thought the end times would unfold and came across this
'will be the time when secular rulers and religious leaders are uniting to enforce Sunday worship as this will appear to be the only hope for turning away the wrath of the Lord. Seventh-Day Adventists will be in agony not knowing what to do. Should they go to church both on Saturday AND on Sunday, or should they refuse to observe Sunday sacredness and as usual go to church on the Bible Sabbath (Saturday) only. Two groups will then be forming among 7th-Day Adventists, one group which will be in conformance with the new law of the land to obey and attend Sunday worship, the other group standing firm to worship on Saturday morning only. The first group will be respectably law abiding as far as this world is concerned whereas those belonging to the second group will become outcasts and be considered the scum of this world as they refuse to fall in line with the new law of the land calling for mandatory Sunday worship.

"Society is also enriched by a countless array of organizations which work to promote the common good and to defend the environment, whether natural or urban. Some, for example, show concern for a public place (a building, a fountain, an abandoned monument, a landscape, a square), and strive to protect, restore, improve or beautify it as something belonging to everyone" (232).
In a similar vein, Francis also reflects on the importance of rest: "Sunday, like the Jewish Sabbath, is meant to be a day which heals our relationships with God, with ourselves, with others and with the world… We tend to demean contemplative rest as something unproductive and unnecessary, but this is to do away with the very thing which is most important about work: its meaning. We are called to include in our work a dimension of receptivity and gratuity, which is quite different from mere inactivity. Rather, it is another way of working, which forms part of our very essence. It protects human action from becoming empty activism; it also prevents that unfettered greed and sense of isolation which make us seek personal gain to the detriment of all else… Rest opens our eyes to the larger picture and gives us renewed sensitivity to the rights of others. And so the day of rest, centred on the Eucharist, sheds it light on the whole week, and motivates us to greater concern for nature and the poor" (237).".. https://www.ncronline.org/news/earthbeat/power-love-and-need-rest
