"The Sabbath is a day set apart for rest and spiritual
renewal. The importance of Sabbath observance, taught from the Creation and throughout
religious history, is reconfirmed in modern scripture and in the teachings of LDS leaders.
Fundamentals of Sabbath observance include prayer, gospel study, worship at Sabbath
meetings, uplifting family activities, and service to others." Encyclopedia
" For Latter-day Saints, modern revelation fixes the day
of weekly worship and holy rest as "the Lord's day," which is Sunday, the first
day of the week (see D&C 59:9-12)." Encyclopedia of Mormonism

When is the Sabbath?
"The Church accepts Sunday as the Christian Sabbath and proclaims the
sanctity of the day. We admit without argument that under the Mosaic law the seventh day
of the week, Saturday, was designated and observed as the holy day, and that the change
from Saturday to Sunday was a feature of the apostolic administration following the
personal ministry of Jesus Christ." Elder James E. Talmage
A Season of Opportunity
"...I also know that remembering to keep the Sabbath day holy is one
of the most important commandments we can observe in preparing us to be the recipients of
the whisperings of the Spirit." Bishop H. David Burton
