    Second and Third centuries

    Once the apostolic community was no longer on the scene, the developing liturgy increasingly used, read, and reflected on the writings of the first-generation leaders such as Paul. When Jewish-Christians were no longer welcome at the synagogue service, they added its prayers, singing, chanting, and homily to the eucharistic liturgy. Today, we recognize this development as the liturgy of the word.

Guidelines instruct the homilist to develop the homily based on the readings. The Sunday readings revolve around a three-year cycle. This emphasis has helped Catholics discover the scriptures.The altar now faces the people. This invites a clearer understanding of what is going on at the eucharist.
