Procession
If the [[priest]] is serving the [[Divine Liturgy]] alone, without a [[bishop]], the Little Entrance is made by the clergy circling the [[altar table]] and then to the middle of the church with the Gospel Book. Then he enters the altar through the [[Iconostasis|royal doors]] of the [[iconostasis]] accompanied by the [[Hymn]] of Entrance.
If the bishop is celebrating, the Gospel Book is brought out to him in the center of the church, in the midst of the people, where he has been standing from the beginning of the liturgy. This is led by the deacon (who holds the Gospel Book in the procession), and is followed by priest's in order of rank.
