Rorate Caeli reported last month on the intervention of the PCED in the Archdiocese of Zagreb, Croatia. In a letter dated November 25, 2010, Msgr. Guido Pozzo told the coetus of Traditional Catholic faithful in Zagreb that Cardinal Bozanic had promised to ensure the celebration of the TLM in one of the churches of his Archdiocese.
The blog Toma Blizanac has now published the following translation of a letter issued by the Vicar General of Zagreb on behalf of Cardinal Bozanic:
No.: 43/2011Zagreb, 5 January 2011

Dear Mr. ***,
I inform you that the Archbishop of Zagreb, His Eminence Cardinal Josip Bozanić, accepting your petitions, has appointed the Reverend Monsignor dr. Stanislav Vitković, prebendary, to take care of and be at disposal in the Archdiocese of Zagreb for the celebration of the Holy Mass according to the Roman Missal, published in 1962, in accordance with the regulations of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI.
At the same time, it has been decided that he will begin this service on 20 February 2011. Church of St. Martin in Zagreb (Vlaška street, 36) is made available for the use in the above mentioned celebrations of Mass. Holy Mass according to the Missal of Bl. John XXIII will be celebrated there every Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation at 11:30 am.
I ask you, therefore, to refer all further questions related to the celebrations of the Holy Mass according to the Roman Missal from 1962 to the address of Archdiocesan Chancery in Zagreb.
In Christ, High Priest and Lord and the communion of His Church,

In addition, Rorate has been informed that a society dedicated to promoting the TLM was founded in Zagreb on Saturday, January 15, 2011. The society, called Benedictus, had 18 founding members.
