I took a class in song as worship a couple years ago ..one of the points made was the early Catholic church did not have pews or kneelers.. they were more in the style of the orthodox that stand during the service.. also quite was not demanded, people walked around and often greeted each other during the service.. the only song at that time came from the priest.. not there was no priesthood at the time of Justin Martyr he called the one reading scripture, teaching and then officiation at the Lords supper "the president ".

We have to be careful when we equate the early services with the mass.. there was no prescribed responses and the communal prayers were not in Latin, but the native tongue. There were no vestments or relics on the altar or many of the other Jewish practices that the church later incorporated.

Beautiful. Thank you for posting.

That video describes perfectly what we do every week in our non-denominational fundamentalist protestant congregation.

Song, prayer, reading and meditating on the Word, communion with the Lord.

All these years, and it’s still the same.

Good Post! They believed in the real presence being eaten. They knew what it meant from the Apostles. “Truly, truly this is my Body.”

The requirement for priests ended in 70 CE
with the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem.
