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.
Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

Monthly Reflection by
Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

It was such a blessed time of God’s revelation that we experienced during the International Youth Conference.

October 4, 2015

Today, we pray for atheists

Lord Jesus, today we pray for those who deny the existence of You, our living God. May Your Holy Spirit convict them and bring them to repentance. We pray that each year that they have lost will be regained for Your glory, for Your kingdom. Open the eyes of their souls that they may really see You. Let us Christians be used as instruments to bring the lost back into the fold. May we never drive anyone away from You with our loveless words or actions. Keep us from losing our own faith too. Amen.
