"COME TO ME, ALL YOU WHO LABOUR AND ARE BURDENED, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST." (MATTHEW 11:28)


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.
Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

Monthly Reflection by
Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

Suffering has always been a part and parcel of our earthly sojourn. The difference is that - with the Calvary event, all of us are brought to the saving shadow of the cross.

April 20, 2014

Today, we pray for an Easter experience

Lord Jesus, today as we mark Your triumphant resurrection, we pray for an Easter experience, in our own lives. Let there be a resurrection in our faith, ministry and our family life, our value system, our education and career, our relationship with God and men. Jesus who won victory for us on the cross, help us with a powerful anointing of Your Holy Spirit, to fulfil that Easter experience in our own lives. Amen.
