130–5. , before the beginning of the eucharistic liturgy in the narrower sense (the Eastern rite still retains the dismissal of the catechumens, though it is sometimes omitted). Thus they ﬁrst beheld and ﬁrst shared in the eucharistic mystery at the same time. Whether the distinction between members and non-members ought to be marked by making the eucharist a quasi-arcane rather than an entirely public “mystery” is of course debatable (see Wainwright’s critical remarks, p. 134); the present point is simply that it clearly reﬂects the church’s concern to make the distinction plain.
