DIVINE RETREAT CENTRE

Shalom

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

Matthew was deeply aware of his unworthiness to be a disciple of Jesus. His past made him grateful for what the Master had done for him. It is noteworthy that while Matthew avows that he was a publican, the other evangelists do not mention this derogatory word about him.

Today, we pray for the hungry

Lord Jesus, today we bring to You those among us who are hungering for a square meal. Lord, do not judge our cruel world where the wealthy are enjoying the best of luxuries while millions are starving. We also surrender our hunger for love, care and fellowship. We especially submit the vulnerable - the old, the children and the lonely, who do not have anyone to offer them anything and have to fend for themselves daily. Forgive those who talk about feeding the hungry but never do so. May those who hunger be filled, by You and by Your creations somewhere, who actually live Your love. Amen.
