What day is the true Sabbath day?  Apr 7, 2009
Let me share with you what I recently read on this intriguing subject: Sabbath. Alexander Schmemann in the introduction to "Liturgical Theology" makes good use of the question. His excerpt, titled, "The Day of the Lord," does remind us of the history of Sabbath. He notes Constantine, the emperor, who introduced a day of rest ("day of the sun") that he made an obligatory day of rest. We as Christians reflect on Saturday as a day of rest, and indicate to ourselves the Lord's Day as a day of meditation, Church, and time to renew. I think of it as a day of rest.

The essay notes that Sunday, the seventh day, is converted into a kind of "prototype" Christian day of rest. "Converted" is the word used by Schmemann, as is "prototype," and they are well chosen.

What intrigued me most, and captured my imagination in this excerpt appearing in the "Glenstal Book of Readings for the Season," was the Eighth day, a kind of mystical concept of depth, perhaps in line with the mystical depths of Israel. Beyond the days of the week, the Eighth day "is the first day of the New Aeon," what we can call the day of the Messiah (his time). It is the first day after creation, so Schmemann points out in this reading for Saturday of the Fifth Week of Lent.

I do like the quote he uses, and it is from Enoch. I repeat it here: "that the eighth day be the first after my creation, that in the beginning of the eighth millennium there be a time without reckoning, everlasting, without years, months, weeks, days or ours."

Interested in this excellent book of readings I've noted in this short note regarding the Sabbath, which became for Christians the Lord's Day instead of the traditional Hebrew Saturday. Though not a Christian "equivalent," but a question of time. For we do note the creation of the world, and that the Almighty rested on Saturday. We note the "goodness" of the world, for from the beginning, "It was very good." We hold joy on Saturday and can in memory, however brief on that Satuday, give thanks for all created things. I must say, Alexander Schmemann writes and intriguing entry, and so I have shared it here with you reader.

By the way, "The Glenstal Book of Readings for the Seasons" is published by Liturgical Press. It is neatly small, and a lovely little book with a leather cover. The entire book is 317 pages. This is but one rich and imaginative comment from the work, and I trust intriguing and a good reminder of our Day of Rest, and the Lord's Day.
