I will never shop on Sunday, and have tried to cut out Sunday restaurants (once or twice in the past 5 years) - I am hoping to never do it again.
I'm not sure where these exceptions came in paragraph 2187 of the Catechism of things allowed to happen on Sundays.
I am also in favor of getting rid of CYO sports on Sunday.
So I'm not sure how either "sports or restaurants" DON'T make unnecessary demands on others.
"I don't want to make any unnecessary demands on you, but I need someone to ref my kids soccer game, and someone has to make me a sandwich"?????
I'm not debating the Catechism, I just share all this as the fruit of some research and thinking over the years on this subject, along with sharing this quote from the Catechism as well. What are your thoughts? Why do you think the Catechism includes sports and restaurants as things that are necessary? Is it the inclusion of something unique to a particular culture?
