"My chosen one in whom my soul delights" (Is 42:1) - Fr. Augustine Vallooran VC

It is very significant that Pope Francis asserts that the way the Religious are to be at the service of the Church today is by being prophets. It is not enough that they claim to imitate Jesus Christ radically.

Miracle healing of pancreatic cancer - rani bose, bangalore

I am sixty years of age, a housewife, and have a son and a daughter. In July 1999. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I had a major surgery in CMC Hospital Vellore. The surgeon told us that the chances of my survival were very remote but they would try to do their best. I sent prayer request to the Divine Retreat Centre and I also started praying fervently. I forgave all those who hurt me. The operation was successful. After the operation the doctor said that he felt God’s presence while operating on me. I believe it happened through the power of prayer. I had a speedy and sound recovery and till now Jesus has given me good health.

In August 2000 I attended a retreat in Delhi conducted by Fr. Augustine Vallooran and His team. During that retreat Fr. Augustine called out my name and gave a message that I received the healing touch of the Lord Jesus. I believed and claimed the healing and gradually I was healed of my bleeding problem from which I suffered for several years. In 2004 our daughter told us that her Alpha protein test reading was very high and the doctors told her that the baby’s spine could be affected and advised her to terminate her pregnancy. She had total faith in the Lord Jesus and she decided to go through the pregnancy.

It was at this time, in April 2004, my husband and I attended a retreat at Divine Retreat Centre and it was our first retreat at DRC. During the retreat we prayed for our daughter fervently to have a safe delivery and to have a healthy baby. On 10 June 2004 our daughter gave birth to a healthy and beautiful baby girl and named her Akriti. The good Lord answered our prayers. Since then, every year we are visiting DRC to give praise and thanks to the Lord for the marvels He has done for us. We thank you Jesus!
