Little Entrance

The Little Entrance was originally the very beginning of the temple Divine Liturgy.  The Antiphons that come before it were part of a procession that the faithful would make from their homes and shrines. This procession would culminate at the central temple in the town.  This little entrance was originally the arrival of the bishop for the liturgy, but as parishes multiplied and the bishop couldn’t be at every liturgy, the gospel book replaced the bishop, as both represent Jesus himself.  Later, when the procession no longer passed through the town, but rather left the altar area, and returned to it, the little entrance took on the symbolism of Christ’s incarnation, life-giving work in the world, and then return to heaven having united the faithful to Himself.  During this entrance, the gospel book is held in such a way that it covers the face of the priest or the deacon who carries it.  This “man with the face of the gospel” allows the priest or deacon who is carrying the gospel to submit his own identity to Christ, who is living in him!

“Immediately they left their nets and followed him.” Hearing the call, Peter, Andrew, James and John left one calling to become fishers of men. The life of prayer and devotion in monasticism and holy orders is a special way to live this calling. Is Christ calling you or someone you know to do the same?
