DIVINE RETREAT CENTRE

Peace be with you...

Welcome to the official website of the Divine Retreat Centre, Kerala, India

The Divine Retreat Centre is the largest Catholic retreat centre in the world. Over 15 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 out as a preaching ministry, has now evolved into a home of love by the providence of God.

This website is our effort to keep in touch with our beloved retreatants and anyone in need of the Lord's comforting touch. As you glance through the pages of our site, we hope that it is not only informative, but also provides a spiritual experience for you. Let it always be etched into your hearts that Divine remembers and prays for you and your family everyday.

May God's grace be with you.

Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

Monthly Reflection by
Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

In the teachings of Jesus, the Lord invites us to wait for Him at every moment of our life.

Today, we pray for our protection

Lord Jesus, today we pray for protection - from evil, strife, bad habits and any vile attacks of Satan. Lord, we want to live glorifying Your name. Sometimes, we build up shackles which destroy us, instead of keeping us safe. Protect us - from this moment, in a very special way, Lord Jesus. Send Your angels to stand guard over us and our own. More than anything, keep us away from anything that hinders us from loving You and loving our brethren. Amen.
