If you look into it, you'll see that the Catholic Pope changed the day of worship to Sunday, which acording to SDA is in direct violation of the bible.
Actually the Catholic pope didn't change the day of worship to Sunday - the early Christians worshipped on Sunday (the first day fo the week) because that's the day of Christ's Resurrection. “On the first day of the week, when we met to break bread, Paul was holding a discussion with them: since he intended to leave the next day...” (Acts 20:7) Collections during services is also in the bible "“Now concerning the collection for the saints: you should follow the directions I gave to the churches of Galatia. On the first day of every week, each of you is to put aside and save whatever extra you earn, so that collections need not be taken when I come.” [1 Cor. 16:1-2).

So by altering which day the Sabbath is kept on, you are in fact going against the commandment to honor it and keep it holy.
It's not altering the Sabbath. The first Christians were taught by the apostles that the Old Covenant requirement of sabbatarian worship was no longer binding on them because Christ had fulfilled the Old Covenant and instituted the New One in his blood. This is evident in such Bible passages as Acts 20:7, Rom. 14:4-6, 1 Cor. 15:20-23, Col. 2:16-17, and 2 Cor. 5:1-5.
