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

To a believer, prayer essentially means reaching out to the throne of God with joyful praises.

September 17, 2016

Today, we pray for relationships with rifts

Lord Jesus, we surrender to You those of us who are torn and suffering today because of silly misunderstandings; the ones who are silent and angry towards their dearest ones. We pray that Your love penetrates into our very souls and heals the wounds which run deep. May we believers learn to rebuke the devil and stay away from his tactics. May we make peace first, before bringing ourselves to Your altar. May our relationships be blessed more and more. May rifts be healed and let love from You towards our people, surpass everything. Amen.
