Mediaeval churches often had images of the 'Sunday Christ', wounded by the failure to rest and hear Mass on the Sabbath.
The Bishops of England and Wales have written:
"We now encourage all Catholics to look again at the patterns which they have formed in recent months with regard to going to Mass on Sundays. This would include consideration and reflection about what we might do on Sundays, such as sports or shopping, or other leisure and social activities. This review, and the decisions which arise from it, fall to every Catholic and we trust this will be done with honesty, motivated by a real love for the Lord whom we encounter in the Mass."
