44 All who believed were together and had all things in common; 45 they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need. 46 Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, 47 praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.
Doesn’t this passage imply that “breaking of bread” (communion) was performed separately to worship (Mass) in the temple? Doesn’t it also imply that they were breaking bread without the need for a priest, It would seem that it is implied that each individual household was performing the consecration???
I’ve always believed (and still do) that the early Church worshiped as Catholics do, but this doesn’t sound very Catholic.
