St. Justin Martyr on the Eucharist and the Ancient Mass

Today’s saint, St. Justin Martyr, laid out one of the earliest descriptions of the Mass in his “First Apology,” written between 153 and 155 A.D. It’s great, because it offers a simplified version of Catholic theology intended for those who had no idea about the Eucharist or Mass. HIs description reveals how constant the Mass has remained over the last two millennia.
