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

God chooses certain people as His own and keeps them close to His Heart - but these very people turn away from God, resorting to sin.

February 9, 2016

Today, we pray for our mothers

Lord Jesus, on this day we bring to You our mothers and mother figures - those precious women who carried us in their wombs, nurtured us, prayed for us, corrected us and loved us, even while punishing us. May her every tear, prayer be answered by You, Almighty God, especially the ones for her family. Help us women become good Christian mothers who put you first and family second. Lord Jesus, help us mums become more like Mother Mary and Saint Anne. May we love and honour our own mothers who brought us painfully into this world, until that last breath leaves our nostrils. A special prayer for the motherless and the childless - that all the saints in heaven will comfort them today. Amen.
