Necessary to Strengthen our Bodies

James Fisher, Catechism on the Catechism, Question #58:

Q. 11. Are not sleeping and eating on the Sabbath day our own works?
A. If these refreshments of nature are in moderation, and to the glory of God on the Sabbath, they are not properly our own works, because they are necessary to strengthen our bodies for religious exercises.
