We all need to take a look as clearly the National Sunday Law planning and implementation is being laid out right before our very eyes..
 
If you go through the May 2020 Popes encyclical letter, 'Laudato Si', you find is suggested to be enforced by the nations.
 
Pope Francis updated May 2020 plan is to rally Nations behind Climate Change and Sunday law.
 
The encyclical is called Laudato Si, and is the Pope's encyclical on climate change, which looks on the surface as just reducing carbon emissions, carpooling, planting trees and recycling, etc....But  in the encyclical, the Pope suggest also a worldwide day of rest, Sundays with keeping a better environment.
 
 The implication here is that we need to have a law mandating rest on Sunday, so it appears that his agenda on climate change includes giving Sunday rest and worship mandated by law to improve the environment.. The Pope is asking the world to join this rest, take a look..
 
 In his May 2020 encyclical updated letter 'Laudato S?i'.
 "...As part of this year's anniversary activities, a 'Laudato Si' Action Platform will also be launched, with various institutions committing to a 7-year project aimed at reaching total sustainability in the spirit of Laudato S'i.
 Among the goals of the platform, according to the Vatican's department for Integral Human Development, are adopting simpler lifestyles and developing ?ecological economics? based on sustainable production, fair trade, using less plastic and adopting a more plant-based diet to reduce meat consumption, as well as a broader use of public transport in order to reduce pollution.
 According to their communique, the Vatican's development office intends to launch the platform in early 2021 by inviting several institutions to begin the 7-year project. The following year, they will encourage a new group to join, with the hope of doubling the number of entities committing to the 7-year plan.
 In this way we are planning to grow a Laudato Si ' inspired network that continues to expand and grow exponentially each year,' they said, noting that this initiative will continue for each consecutive year of the new decade, with the goal of arriving at the 'critical mass' needed in order to lead a 'radical societal transformation' inspired by Pope Francis in Laudato Si......" https://cruxnow.com/vatican/2020/05/vatican-launches-year-long-celebration-of-laudato-si/
 
 The encyclical letter Laudato Si is available here on the Vatican website. And so we come to the notion of rest, or more accurately, Sabbath:
 237. On Sunday, our participation in the Eucharist has special importance. 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. Sunday is the day of the Resurrection, the 'first day' of the new creation, whose first fruits are the Lord's risen humanity, the pledge of the final transfiguration of all created reality. It also proclaims '(humankind's) eternal rest in God'.[CCC 2175] In this way, Christian spirituality incorporates the value of relaxation and festivity. http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/encyclicals/documents/papa-francesco_20150524_enciclica-laudato-si.pdf#page=47
 
 And look how everyone agrees what a great idea....

Just one more call among the many from Rome, to establish their chosen day of worship upon all. Thanks for sharing that. I was going through and addressing the Encyclical Laudato Si' in the Roman politics thread here, and the Green Deal thread in the Christian politics forum. I have intended to get back to it, but there is so much going on so fast nowadays, it is hard to keep up.

Well, lets see if this is now in play after the new administration puts its 'climate change' agenda out there.

Catholic President, more Catholics in Congress than any other faith or denomination, 7 out of nine Supreme court Justices Catholic. They basically have all three branches, created to maintain a balance. So much for balance. I'd be surprised if they do not make their move. This has always been how they operate. The reaction of the American people alone, can stop them now if they make their move. I have posted this quote on these boards several times over in the past, but its significance has only increased over time -

Quote
In America, particularly, is this investigation important. In all the countries over which it has triumphed, Popery, like the anaconda, has wound around its folds of art, of cunning, of superstition and of power, until, enclosing everything in its too friendly embraces, it has, with one tremendous effort, crushed the nation to death. It sends forth its missionaries; it gathers its schools and colleges; it erects its cathedrals and builds its churches; it is patriotic, benevolent, charitable. Its alms and offerings attract the vulgar, its austerities and penances convince the sceptical. It is at first tolerated; then approved; next obeyed! But now come the dread realities of the system, taxation, passive submission, excommunications, interdicts, crusades, the inquisition, destruction. Yes, Popery has well nigh destroyed every country in which it has been predominant. The liberties and national prosperity of a people cannot coexist with such a system.

Let then, Americans — Americans, who have never witnessed a Court of Inquisition, or an Auto-da-fe, on their virgin soil; Americans, whose national liberties are still fragrant with the blood of revolutionary forefathers; Americans, whose proud eminence in the civilized world, gives them more to lose than other nations; let Americans especially examine this subject well. And if, in such an examination, the following pages shall contribute but a mite to the discovery of the truth, the author will feel himself more than compensated for the labor they have cost him.(CHRIST AND ANTICHRIST, by Samuel J. Cassels, 1846, PART 2 ANTICHRIST OR THE PAPACY PROVED TO BE THE ANTICHRIST PREDICTED IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, INTRODUCTORY REMARKS, Pgs. 125&126)
