The First Precept of the Church
The first Precept of the Church requires regular attendance at Mass on Sundays
Leave everything on the Lord’s Day and run diligently to your assembly, because it is your praise of God. Otherwise, what excuse will they make to God, those who do not come together on the Lord’s Day to hear the word of life and feed on the divine nourishment which lasts forever?
(From the Didascalia, 3rd cent.)
