As a young man, Justin explored all the popular philosophies of his time, but none satisfied him until he discovered Christianity. Justin became a Christian philosopher, opening a school and writing many explanations of the faith for the Romans. He was eventually martyred. He wrote: “In every race of human beings God inserts an understanding of righteousness, that is, what is always and universally just.” Much of what we know about how Mass was celebrated in the early Church, we learned from his writings.
