The Mass Of The Early Christians
In The Mass Of The Early Christians, author Mike Aquilina reveals the Church's most ancient Eucharistic beliefs and practices.
Using the words of the early Christians themselves -- from many documents and inscriptions -- Aquilina traces the Mass's history from Jesus' lifetime through the 4th century. The Mass stood at the center of the Church's life, evident in the Scriptures as well as the earliest Christian sermons, letters, artwork, tombstones and architecture. Even the pagans bore witness to the Mass in the records of their persecutions.
You will see vividly how Jesus followed through on his promise to be with us always, until the end of time.
