Curriculum vitae

Radić was born in Kupres in 1965, where he completed his elementary and secondary school and later on continued his education in Subotica, Osijek and Zagreb.[1] He graduated in economics at the Faculty of Economics in Subotica in 1989, and obtained his master’s degree in economics in 1994, in Osijek. For several years until 1997, he worked as a consultant in the Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Traffic and Infrastructure in Zagreb. He entered the Catholic Theology Faculty in 1997, completed three years there and continued his education as Seminarian of Zadar Archdiocese in Rijeka. He was ordained as a deacon on July 14, 2002 in the parish church of Nativity of Mary in Benkovac[2] and he served then as the assistant in the office of Zadar Archbishop. Msgr. Ivan Prendja ordained him as a priest on June 28, 2003 in Cathedral of St. Anastasia in Zadar.[3]

OMNIA DEO – All to God

In cooperation with co-foundress Jozefina Glasnović, married lay woman, mother of six, Radić established the religious society "Omnia Deo – All to God", constituted of the members of the Eucharistic Community of Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The spiritual family "Omnia Deo – All to God" is made of the Catholic priests, seminarians, religious sisters and many families. Canonical institution of the Religious Society OMNIA DEO took place on June 8, 2018 in the cathedral of St. Vitus in Rijeka.[4]

Everything began in 1998, with a small group of people who gathered as a prayer group with the intention to deepen their personal religious life. Several girls who were members of that group felt religious vocation in 2002, and their first group was made in Krk Diocese, spiritually led by Radić. After some time, they made contact with Bishop of Krk, Msgr. Valter Zupan, who accepted their arrival to this diocese. These girls were soon joined by new members and they all continued to live consecrated life in two ways – cloistered and opened life. On October 1, 2015, after the invitation of Rijeka Archbishop Msgr. Ivan Devcic, these nuns came to Rijeka Archdiocese too.[5]

In August 2005, in the parish of St. Lawrence the martyr in Kali, at Ugljan island, the religious community of priests Hearts of Jesus and Mary, with the approval of Zadar Archbishop Msgr. Ivan Predja, began their activities. The inspiration to establish this community came in Encyclical Letter "Sacerdotii nostri primordia" of Pope John XXIII, published on 100th death anniversary of John Maria Vianney.[6]
