Mass in a Moment
By Margaret Bick
The Entrance Song &
Have you ever noticed that the celebration of the Eucharist usually begins with song? And that everyone sings? From beginning to end the Mass is a very musical activity.
The Roman Missal notes that song is a way of showing and intensifying our unity with one another. Our singing opens us to the action of the Holy Spirit. What a wonderful way to begin our celebration of this sacrament of unity!
Our song and procession at the beginning of Mass mark the formal beginning of our celebration. The entrance of the priest and other ministers signals that the gathering of this sacred assembly is now complete.
Our song is one with Christ’s eternal hymn of praise to the Father and with the song of all creation to its Creator.
“Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Come before God, singing for joy.”
