Liturgical notes

The offerings are then brought forward. It is praiseworthy for the bread and wine to be presented by the faithful. They are then accepted at an appropriate place by the priest or the deacon and carried to the altar. Even though the faithful no longer bring from their own possessions the bread and wine intended for the liturgy as in the past, nevertheless the rite of carrying up the offerings still retains its force and its spiritual significance.

It is well also that money or other gifts for the poor or for the Church, brought by the faithful or collected in the church, should be received. These are to be put in a suitable place but away from the Eucharistic table.

General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §73 

As the gifts are being brought to the altar by members of the faithful, they should be processed in such a way as to invite the whole assembly to place their own offering of themselves upon the table of sacrifice. Occasionally their offering may be enhanced by other gifts for the poor. Whatever is brought to the altar does not return to the giver, but is placed in a significant place—not on the altar, as are the bread and wine—then distributed after Mass.

‘Like the deer that yearns for running streams, so my soul is yearning for you, my God; my soul is thirsting for God, the living God.’

—communion antiphon
