Prayer of the Month


Court case solved, health restored and promoted at work - Terence Rodrigues, Mumbai

I work overseas on a cruise ship as a Senior Assistant Manager. I attended my first retreat at Divine Retreat Centre along with my family in 2006. I made a good confession during the retreat. When I went back to work I got my first promotion which I did not get earlier though I put up ten years of service in the company. Later I received two more promotions after attending retreats at DRC. I also had a tough court case that we struggled for four years and it got solved. I had pain in my back and lungs four months ago. I consulted the doctor overseas and an x-ray was taken but there was no improvement. I came to another doctor here in India and he gave me vitamin tablets but in vain. Yesterday, on 10 Jan 2017, during the adoration the pain completely disappeared. I attended eight retreats at DRC so far. I praise and thank God for all His blessings. “O GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD, FOR HIS STEADFAST LOVE ENDURES FOREVER” (Ps 136:1).
