DIVINE RETREAT CENTRE

Peace be with you...

The Divine Retreat Centre is the largest Catholic retreat centre in the world. Over 10 million pilgrims from all over the world have attended retreats here since 1990. It is an achievement possible only through the grace of God. The centre which started as a preaching ministry, has now evolved into a home of love by the providence of God. May God's grace be with you.

Monthly Reflection by
Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

When one opens one’s heart to the will of God, godliness flows in, offering all of heaven’s grand possibilities.

Today, we pray over our losses

Lord Jesus, today we bring to You everything that we count as loss in our lives today. The failed interview, wasted education, the broken home, the lost relationship, the thwarted plans, the insulted friendship, the shattered dreams, the destroyed ministry and many more. Lord, when You breathe life into our losses, they become precious gains once again. Help us to experience that and more importantly, recognise and thank You sincerely for that. May no child of Yours despair today over anything that he or she has lost. May we keep our eyes focused on what lies ahead - victory in Your name and by Your power. And may we have the humility and the grace to work in replacing and rebuilding whatever we have lost for us or others, or for Your Kingdom, by our own folly. Amen.
