My 15-yr-old son is excited to have his first job and not too many businesses hire 15-yr-olds. When they asked when he could work, he said anytime, and so he works at various times, including a couple hours on Sunday morning. We plan ahead and attend the vigil on Saturday if he works on Sunday. Now that school has started, he can continue working, but only on Saturdays and Sundays. Cutting out Sunday would reduce his hours in half, from 4 to 2 each week.
Should I have him stop working on Sundays? Am I allowing him to break the 3rd commandment?
Edited in case this helps:
My son is a “sign twirler” for a local bakery. He wears a costume and dances with a sign to advertise the business.
Also, CCC 2185:
On Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are to refrain from engaging in work or activities that hinder the worship owed to God, the joy proper to the Lord’s Day, the performance of the works of mercy, and the appropriate relaxation of mind and body. Family needs or important social service can legitimately excuse from the obligation of Sunday rest. the faithful should see to it that legitimate excuses do not lead to habits prejudicial to religion, family life, and health.
