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

The word of God to be proclaimed is the Word that has become flesh in the life of the one who proclaims. Only then it would be accepted as a saving message.

Today, we pray for those addicted to mobiles

Lord Jesus, we pray for those among us who battle the urge to check phones and laptops several times in an hour. Let people know the dangers of bringing these into our bedrooms, dining tables and homes. Heal us, sweet Jesus. Let technology not make us totally dependant and let these devices stay out of our families, marriages and relationships. Let us have immense grace to firmly turn them off, except when we have a genuine need. A prayer for those addicted to gaming, porn and social media as well. Let God alone be our Master. Let prayer and family time and nurturing relationships replace these devices. Amen.
