16. What action of the American Federation of Catholic Societies indicates that Catholics will gladly
"join hands" with Protestants in enforcing Sunday observance by law?
'Our societies in the various parts of the United States have been urging the abolition of Sunday labor, and
have endorsed and assisted the movement of closing the post office on Sunday." -Tenth Annual
Convention of American Federation of Catholic Societies, Columbus, Ohio, August 20-24, 1911.
NOTES - With the active co-operation of the Lord's Day Alliance of the United States, a
Protestant organization, a proviso was attached to the Post-office Appropriation Bill, 1912, requiring that
"hereafter post offices of the first and second classes shall not be opened on Sundays for the purpose of
delivering mall to the general public."
The following resolution was adopted by the Boston Archdiocesan Federation of Catholic
Societies:"We are unalterably opposed to any relaxation of the Sunday laws. Sunday is a day of rest to be
devoted to the praise and service of God. We hold the safest public policy at present is to adhere to the
rigid observance of the laws now safeguarding the sanctity of the Lord's day."--Boston Pilot, official organ
of Cardinal O'Connell, March 16, 1912.
