From the April 1919 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The length of the Sabbath varies in the Scripture records all the way from a day to eternity; in fact, any religious festival or holiday was termed by the Hebrews "a sabbath unto the Lord. " As a modern institution the Sabbath, or rest from labor, as the word implies, has lost through the centuries of materialism much of its original spiritual significance and in some countries is now regarded more as a secular festival than as a religious holy day.
