Monthly Reflection by
Prayer of the Month
The media wing of the Divine Retreat Centre
Jesus went to the house of Zacchaeus and to the house of Matthew, the tax collector. He also preached in synagogues, by the sea, and on the hillsides. In fact, Jesus proclaimed his message of love and repentance wherever it was needed. To walk in the Master's footsteps - this is the inspiration that led the Vincentian fathers to take up the call of our Pope towards "a new evangelisation."
A prophetic church must read the signs of the times and with new technology create a new world of communication - without borders and rooted in Christian values. The TV ministry was something that would cost a lot. It would most definitely not attract sponsors that commercially viable programmes would. Still this was the step Divine felt we could no longer ignore. What we needed is a Divine vision.
The Vincentian fathers of the Divine-Potta ministry, in addition to conducting retreats in 7 languages on a regular basis, have also been going around the world holding retreats. But Jesus spoke of the "world" that we need to touch with the Word of God - the "world" that will not bother to step into churches or spiritual retreat centres.
We were concerned about those who, after going back from the Divine retreats and conventions, thirst for the beauty and purity of the Word preached here. Divine Vision, the TV ministry of the Divine Retreat Centre, is focused on deeply teaching the masses, the "Way of Christ."
In this powerful way the word of the Lord kept spreading and growing stronger (Acts 19:20)
