The purpose of the entrance rite is to draw those gathered into unity as the one Body of Christ. What a lovely way to remember and say good-bye to those who died in Lac-Mégantic:

“The Catholic mass opened with a reading of the names of all 47 victims, followed by a excerpt from Isaiah: ‘I will not forget you, I have your names etched upon the palms of my hands.'”
