Processions at Mass have a functional purpose but also a spiritual side. Let us look at the procession with the gifts of bread and wine. Three or four people bring them up with the collection but they represent all of us in the congregation—they carry up the gifts on behalf of all of us–for all of us are to offer gift to God, the gift of our lives.
Each of us is preparing to lay our life on the altar as gift in union with Jesus who offered His whole life to the Father. We come through Him, with Him, in Him to give God honour and glory.
