What does the Church teach about gambling and entertainment on Sunday?

I would like to know more regarding the Church’s position on the issue of gambling/betting as it pertains to Sundays. Is it wrong to gamble on a sporting event or attend a casino on a Sunday?

What about a Catholic owning any type of entertainment facility that would open on a Sunday?

Thank you :slight_smile:
