Pope Benedict exhorts Christians to keep Sunday holy

Sep 9, 2007 - 05:11 pm .- As Pope Benedict XVI bid farewell to Austria today, he called on everyone to live Sunday’s in a Christian manner. Quoting a 20th century German bishop, Benedict exhorted people to “Give the soul its Sunday and give Sunday its soul.”Speaking during his homily at St. Stephen's cathedral in the heart of Vienna, the Holy Father’s encouraged the faithful to enjoy true leisure. He also noted that while leisure is a good thing amid the mad rush of the modern world, it can also be a danger if it becomes just wasted time.
