ZAGREB, April 1, 2018 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenković and Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković on Sunday attended Easter mass at the Zagreb Cathedral celebrated by Cardinal Josip Bozanić, whose sermon Plenković said carried a message of togetherness and dialogue.
“After Cardinal Bozanić’s lovely sermon, a message of hope and togetherness, solidarity and dialogue, I believe we will all, renewed and inspired by the strength of Christ’s resurrection, work even harder for the well-being of all Croatian people,” Plenković said.
To citizens who did not have enough money for even the most modest consumer basket on Easter, he said state institutions were doing all in their power to improve the economic situation and the standard of living, taking into account the Christian principle of solidarity.
We have shown that by raising the minimum wage, by reducing the tax burden, raising the average wage, and we are trying to care for the elderly through pension indexation, the prime minister said, confident that the positive economic trends will continue and contribute to improving the quality of life of all citizens.
Speaking to the press before mass, the parliament speaker said Easter “is the day which teaches us the meaning of life, which urges us to be good to others, to look after and help them.”
