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

When we read the Word of God, we must be attentive to God waiting to speak to our hearts.

November 28, 2015

Today, we pray for the healing of our addiction to TV

Lord Jesus, today we bring to You the hypnotic attachment the world today has to television-watching. We pray especially for homes where even family prayer has been replaced by incessant sitcom-watching. May the attention of our young not be captured or corrupted by anything vulgar or offensive. Protect what we watch and wash it with Your Precious Blood. Our families should be spending time with You and with each other daily, rather than being cooped up in front of the TV. Give us the strong will and the grace for it, Lord Jesus. Amen.
