What did those early celebrations look like?

  Already around the year AD 155, St. Justin Martyr described the   basic outline of the Mass we have today. Christians gathered together on Sunday and read from the writings of the prophets and Apostles (Old and New Testament readings). The presider gave an exhortation to live out the Christian Faith (a homily) and rose to offer prayers of petition to God (Prayer of the Faithful). Bread and a cup of wine and water were given to the presider (Presentation of the Gifts) who offered them to God and gave thanks (eucharistein in Greek) (the Eucharistic Prayer), and at the conclusion of the prayer of thanksgiving, the people said together, "Amen" (the Great Amen). Deacons gave the people the "eucharisted" bread and wine (Holy Communion) and took them to those who were absent.  Many of the prayers we recite in the Mass today have roots in the first few centuries of Christianity. St. Hippolytus of Rome, for example, writing about AD 215, seems to preserve prayers and rituals from the Eucharistic Liturgy of the second century. Here we find the fundamental structure of the Eucharistic prayers we hear today: prayers of thanksgiving, the words of institution, the commemoration and offering, invocation of the Holy Spirit, the doxology, and the Amen. Consider the following prayers, which are almost exactly the same as what we recite today:  The bishop says: The Lord be with you. And all reply: And with your spirit.  The bishop says: Lift up your hearts.  The people respond: We have them with the Lord. The bishop says: Let us give thanks to the Lord.  The people respond: It is proper and just.  Indeed, when we participate in the Mass, we enter a tradition of rituals and prayers that go back to the first centuries of Christianity!
