Justitia et Pax Commission issues a Call for Action

The Justitia et Pax Commission of the Croatian Bishops' Conference urges believers and all citizens of good will in the Republic of Croatia to participate in the widespread campaign of the European Sunday Alliance. The Commission urges Croatian citizens, especially Christians, to refrain as of that day from shopping on Sundays and, thus, at least show that they want to respect all those workers who, due to the weaknesses of Croatian legal safeguards, are subjected to pressure and forced to work without Sunday as a day of rest, remaining outside the circle of their families, loved ones and children.
