They freely admit they have taken the authority upon themselves to change the law of God....
It is not that they did something sneaky, then were caught and then forced to admit it.
What they (the Catholics, in your examples) are doing is to claim that they have authority over everything.
They did not change the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday.
They acknowledged that there is a Biblical principal of one Holy day, in each week.
What they did was to decide that the Sabbath only applied to the Jews and created a different day, the Lord's Day in commemoration of Jesus rising
from the dead, on Sunday morning.
In actuality, the "Catholic" church did not change the day, it was the non-Jewish, former pagan, converts to Christianity, who adopted their Holy
Day straight away as Sunday, and never went through the transition from the Sabbath.
Once the Catholics established it's authority to make theological determinations and to be able to enforce those decisions, they went on a spree of
passing religious Canon Law.
They codified the proper observance of the Lord's Day, but they are being conceited to say they created the Day.
What they did do was to outlaw anything that reminded anyone of a traditional Sabbath observance.
