 Our Description

In this remarkable book 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 fourth 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.

In these legacies from the early Church, you'll hear and "taste and see" the same worship Catholics know today: the altar, the priests, the chalice of wine, the bread, the Sign of the Cross ... the "Lord, have mercy"... the "Holy, holy, holy"... and the Communion.

You'll see vividly how Jesus followed through on his promise to be with us always, until the end of time.

This is the newly updated and expanded 2nd edition.

Mike Aquilina is a noted Catholic Scripture scholar, apologist and author or editor of more than a dozen books on Catholic history, doctrine, and devotion. He is vice president of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology based in Steubenville, Ohio. Mike is co-host, with Scott Hahn, of “The Lamb’s Supper” (2001), “Hail, Holy Queen” (2002), “First Comes Love” (2003), “Lord, Have Mercy” (2004), and “Swear to God” (2005) — all airing on EWTN. He also appears regularly as a panelist on "The Weekly Roman Observer," broadcast by Catholic Family Network.

Mike's career in publishing spans two decades, and hundreds of his articles have appeared in many periodicals and journals in the United States and abroad. He also runs the popular website Fathers of the Church dot com.
