Mijo Barada (English Texts)
 eucharist


pattern

Mijo Barada, a Croatian Catholic charismatic who is blessed with the “gift of knowledge”, visited Japan and had a small spiritual retreat at a convent in Koganei, Tokyo. Although it was very hectic retreat due to the limited schedule, many people received numerous graces from the Lord. I really appreciate to Josephine, Gabi and the staffs who worked hard for the wonderful event to make it come true!! And, of course, my great gratitude goes to Mijo and Emina who traveled way over to Japan!!

 

Mijo talked mainly about the “land” on which we live. There are the places where the wars, crimes and epidemics repeatedly occur. Then, we can find the Spirit of War, the Spirit of Homicide, the Spirit of Rape and that kind of devils residing in such places. People often get mentally or physically sick without no specific reasons and we can sometimes trace its cause for their activities as well. In order to bind the devils’ power, we must pray and ask the Lord to bless the land and restore the beauty of the land at the Creation. Also, blessing the land is not only for our sake. When we pray for the land, those who lived there before and those who will live there in future can get the grace, too. Awesome, huh?

He shared the story of the power of praise, too. His brother is a famous psychiatrist and literally flying around the world to attend the international conferences. One day, he got a stomach ache and Mijo heard the voice of the Lord, telling him to go to see the doctor immediately. His brother found out the he had a cancer in terminal condition… Mijo told him to go to Church and confess his sins and attend the Mass. They prayed together and praised God together. And voila! His brother fully recovered from the cancer!!

 

Honestly speaking, I had been in spiritual dryness and I had a difficult time for praying during the retreat. No joy nor yearning for Jesus in my heart. It was hard to concentrate on prayer (well, a part of the reason was terrible heat and humidity of the Japanese summer!), and I was physically sick a bit as well. Despite such obstacles, I tried my best just to keep offering myself for who I am and what I am simply by my will.

 

On the first night, folks were praising God in tongues. I personally do not like the style of the charismatic renewal that much (I love contemplation and the spirituality of the Carmelites), so I knelt down and prayed in silence during the Adoration. Suddenly someone hugged me and kissed my head. It was Mijo. I was very surprised and wondered what it meant, since I hadn’t had a conversation with him yet at that time.

 

The most moving part was “Anointing of the Sick” given by the Fathers on the second day. When a priest marked my forehead and my palms with the blessed oil, I felt something very warm inside and was near to tears.

 

Mijo shared the messages from Jesus and visions given to him for each individual at the very last moment of the retreat. Hearing what he saw and what he received from the Lord for me, I finally understood the meaning of his action on the previous day. Jesus talked through Mijo with special and important private message. It struck my mind and he talked about something others than myself do not know. The vision was also amazingly beautiful. For instance, he saw Our Lady gently enfolding my prayer intentions into her mantle when I offer them on the altar. Although I cannot share the message and vision for me in detail with most of the people at this moment, I deeply felt how much Jesus and Mary love this miserable sinner. It was a wonderful reminder of my miraculous conversion experience in Medjugorje. Bogu hvala!!

 

Please pray for me, my friends. Fiat mihi secndum Verbum tuum.
