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

Christmas is the Promise of God that He is waiting to usher in Heaven to every manger on earth. He is searching for followers who will keep His mission on-going.

Today, we pray for those struggling in their vocations

Lord Jesus, we pray today for Your children who are unhappy with the vocations they have chosen or been made to chose for their lives. May we be able to pray fervently and re-asses our choices - career, religious life, family status and singlehood. We desire to glorify Your purpose and perfect will in our lives, Jesus. So help us have the courage to make bold changes or major corrections if required, before its too late. May it really be a calling and not something to merely do with our lives. Give us Your strength, peace and joy when we find the real it. Amen.
