Julia Kim is a Stigmatist living in Naju, South Korea. She is a housewife with four children. In the picture below she and her husband on her left received Pope John Paul II's blessing in Rome on June 3, 1992.
I. Stigmata on Julia's Hands.
In the picture below, Father Raymond Spies -- Julia's Spiritual Director -- and others are looking at the Stigmata on Julia's hands. This happened in Naju on July 2, 1996.
In the following two pictures, on the same day, Father Raymond Spies exposed Julia's hands for others to see.
The Stigmata on her hands were examined by doctors in Kwangiu City, who stated in writing that they could not find any medical explanation for her wounds and bleeding. The Stigmata lasted for a few days and then disappeared.
II. Eucharistic Miracles.
The picture below shows the 8th Eucharistic Miracle to Julia Kim of South Korea. The Sacred Host in Julia's mouth turned into visible flesh and blood. This happened in Naju Parish Church, June 30, 1995. This was witnessed by Fr. Jerry Orbos, Fr. Shimura from Japan, and other Priests from abroad, and many pilgrims.
Below is the 11th Eucharistic Miracle to Julia Kim on September 22, 1995 in Naju, Korea. The Sacred Host on her mouth turned into heart muscles in the shape of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and was bleeding. This happened during the Mass celebrated by Bishop Roman Danylak from Toronto, Canada. He witnessed this miracle together with other people. She was instructed to swallow the Host. She did with difficulty since It had become a lump of flesh and larger.
Sworn Testimony of Bishop Danylak
I, BISHOP ROMAN DANYLAK, Apostolic Administrator of the Eparchy of Toronto for Ukrainian Catholics in Toronto, Canada, and titular Bishop of Nyssa, herewith solemnly testify that I concelebrated the Divine Liturgy of Holy Mass, with Fr. Joseph Peter Finn, retired priest of the London Diocese in Ontario and another priest on Friday, September 22, 1995, at 5 p.m. in an open-air celebration on the grounds of the future basilica to be erected, God-willing, to the honour of the Mother of God and Blessed Virgin Mary.
Following the Liturgy of the Word, I delivered a brief homily for the occasion. After the communion of the priests, we administered Holy Eucharist under the Species of the Host, with the Cup of the Precious Blood to Julia Kim.
As we continued to distribute Holy Communion to the others present, we heard the sudden sobbing of the women present. The Sacred Host received by Julia Kim was changed to living flesh and blood.
Fr. Joseph Finn, who remained at the altar, and was observing Julia, noted that at the moment he turned to observe Julia, he saw the edge of the host (white) disappearing, and changing into the substance of bleeding flesh. I returned to Julia. The Host had changed to dark red living flesh, and blood flowing from it. Julia, after Mass, shared with us that she experienced the Divine Flesh as a thick consistency, and with a copious flowing of blood, more than on the occasion of the previous miracles. After several minutes, when all present had the opportunity of viewing and venerating the miraculous Host, I asked Julia to consume It.
As she explained after the Mass, the Host had become large and fleshy, and she consumed or swallowed It with some difficulty and the taste of blood continued in the mouth for some time. I then asked that Julia be given a glass of water, from the miraculous source nearby. As she consumed the water, a trace of the Precious Blood that had oozed from the side of her mouth was visible on her finger.
In testimony of this, I append my signature, together with the signatures of all the visitors present.
Dated at Naju, this twenty-second day of September, 1995.

Post Scriptum: After Mass and thanksgiving, one of the women present, Michaeline from Tejan, gave testimony to a miraculous healing she had experienced at the time of the consecration at this Mass. Over the previous ten days she had been suffering from intense back and shoulder pains. She was to go to the hospital for medical examination the following Monday. It was she that had cried out suddenly and began to sob, during the time of communion, when she observed Julia sucking her cheeks and she had received the Host and had drunk from the chalice. Michaeline realised that the host was changing in Julia's mouth.
