Holy Days Unholy and Working Days Holy

“One should abolish all festivals, retaining only the Lord’s day. My reason is this: with our present abuses of drinking, gambling, idling, and all manner of sin, we vex God more on holy days than on others. And the matter is just reversed; we have made holy days unholy, and working days holy, and do no service, but great dishonour, to God and His saints with all our holy days.”

~Martin Luther, ‘Address to the German Nobility’ (1520)
