We quote from their own writings as follows:

"Q. What are the days which the church commands to be kept holy? Ö

"A. Ö First the Sunday, or Lordís day, which we observe by apostolic example instead of the Sabbath.

"Q. What warrant have you for keeping Sunday preferably to the ancient Sabbath which was Saturday?

"A. We have for it the authority of the Catholic church and apostolic tradition. Ö"
