Q&A

Does the Sunday observance begin on Saturday evening, in imitation of the Jewish sabbath?

Question:

In ancient Judaism the sabbath was from sundown on Friday <br /> to sundown on Saturday. If Sunday is the Christian sabbath, should we celebrate it from sundown on Saturday to sundown on Sunday? Is this why attending an anticipatory Mass on Saturday evening fulfills our Sunday obligation?
