Mass Today Is Remarkably Close To Those Of The Early Church


St. Justin Martyr (First Apology, 67) gives a remarkable description of early Masses about 100 years after the first Christians began celebrating Mass. It bears so much resemblance to what we celebrate today! Do you take comfort in knowing that we today celebrate the Holy Eucharist and the Mass like our Christian ancestors? I know I do. It links me to the history of our profound Church and it’s mission to bring the Good News to all as is our Baptismal Calling!
