The Fathers saw a profound connection between Eucharistic communion and social concerns—between liturgy and charity. It’s evident in the works of the great saints of antiquity, from Ignatius of Antioch and Justin Martyr to Tertullian and John Chrysostom. It’s spelled out even in the ancient liturgical books.
