Vlado Košić, the (Catholic) bishop of Sisak, led a holiday mass honoring St. Michael, the protector of the Croatian city of Šibenik. He also spoke about secular topics like the media, the Homeland War (1991-95) and the Istanbul Convention. (link was not in original text, it's given here for explanation's sake)

"These days Satan has camouflaged himself within the most influential media, which are more against Croatia than for Croatia. Indeed, look at how many untruths and half-truths they constantly frame people for, and how they accuse their brothers of having committed fictitious crimes, while the other people have almost no space in our media," said Košić.

The bishop of Sisak asked himself how to win and overcome evil in such circumstances. He claims that truth will win, and victory is God's and of his people.

"St. Michael is like a heavenly military commander who defends this nation from the Devil. It may seem as if these days we don't need him so much anymore. However, we could argue that today his protection is more necessary than ever, because modern man is increasingly losing his direction," Košić noted.

"The Istanbul Convention misleads us all because it brings gender ideology. We must decisively say 'no' to this swindle. It gives a distorted image of man and seduces the youth in order to create a new order and a society without God and moral values. The Devil wants to destroy the family because through that he aims to destroy man," said Košić.

Is it not the most normal thing that Croatia, with the greatest number of Catholics, isn't [sic] being compared to Poland, asked the bishop.

"Croatia is trying to be among the countries which dechristianized themselves, allowed same-sex unions, allowed abortion and euthanasia, legalized drugs and accepted a large number of non-Christian immigrants who are mostly unintegrated and violent towards the native people and our Christian culture. What do we want to follow, which examples? We are called upon to join in so we could take part in God's victory," bishop Košić concluded.
