UVOD U ČITANJA—INTRODUCTION
I Izaija predočuje sliku svijeta u kojemu će vladati sklad, mir i zajedništvo. To će se ostvariti u Božjem kraljevstvu. Isaiah displays a new world of unity, peace and harmony. It will be achieved by Christ in God’s kingdom.
II Ljudska povijest je obilježena Božjim hodom s čovjekom. Pozvani smo na suživot s Bogom. In our history God walks with us. We are invited to recognize His presence.
III Ivan Krstitelj poziva na obraćenje za susret s Kristom.
John the Baptist invites us to convert in order to meet with the Christ.
UZ MISNA ČITANJA
Jedna je od temeljnih čovjekovih odrednica i sastavnica njegova čežnja i usmjerenost prema nadnaravnome. Život nam pokazuje da mnoge naše želje i čežnje neće biti ostvarene na način koji priželjkujemo i nekako nas ta spoznaja usmjerava prema onostranom. Današnja nam liturgijska čitanja donose sliku budućeg života u zajedništvu s Bogom, pozivaju na međusobno uvažavanje i prihvaćanje te kao preduvjet toga, obraćenje i povratek na put s Bogom i prema Bogu.

REFLECTION ON READINGS
Our main longing is to meet with the supernatural. All our desires, aims and expectations are not satisfying unless we encounter with the one who has given us all what we are and what we have. God is preparing for us the future where we will live as his people in harmony and aboundance of life. But before it happens we have to convert to God and to accept eachother as his people through His Son, Jesus.
NAKANE APOSTOLATA MOLITVE
Tokom ovog mjeseca prosinca uključujemo nakane sv. Oca Pape u naše molitve.
OPĆA NAKANA: Da bi djeca, koja su žrtve napuštenosti i bilo koje vrste nasilja, mogla naći potrebnu ljubav i zaštitu.
MISIJSKA: Da bi kršćani, nadahnuti svijetlom utjelovljene Riječi Božje, mogli pripraviti čovječanstvo za Spasiteljev dolazak.
Bože, nebeski Oče, prikazujemo Ti svoje molitve i misli, riječi i djela, radosti i trpljenja po Božanskom Srcu Isusovu, Sinu tvome, koji se neprestano prikazuje na oltaru za spas svijeta. Daj da Ti budemo svjedoci tvoje ljubavi i milosrđa. Po zagovoru Blažene Djevice Marije molimo te na nakane Svetog Oca Pape, za potrebe molitvenih apostola, i za sve naše potrebe. Amen.
THE MORNING OFFERING
God, our Father, we offer you our prayers, thoughts, words, actions, joys and sufferings in union with the Heart of your Son, Jesus Christ, who continues to offer Himself in the Eucharist for the salvation of the world. May the Holy Spirit of Jesus be with us to witness to your love. With Mary, the Mother of the Lord and of the Church, we pray especially for the needs of the Apostles of Prayer, for this month’s intentions as proposed by the Holy Father, and for all our needs. Amen.
