Father Zlatko Sudac was born on January 24th, 1971. He is from Krk Island, Croatia, in the northern Adriatic Sea. He was ordained a priest on June 29, 1998, and is a priest for his home diocese of Krk, Croatia.
Fr. Sudac first received the stigmata, in the form of a cross on his forehead in May, 1999. Almost a year and a half later, on October 4, 2000, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, Fr. Sudac received the stigmata on his wrists, feet and side.
Fr. Sudac's ministry and his gift of preaching have led him to many different places in the world, including the United States where he has conducted many retreats and seminars. His primary ministry, however, is as spiritual director of Bethany Retreat House, in Croatia. At Bethany House, Fr. Sudac has welcomed not only Croatians, but people from all over the world, to his retreats. Fr. Sudac is a priest in good standing with his bishop, and with the Church, and he humbly submits to the authority of the Church in all matters related to his gifts and ministry.
