Prayer of the Month


I did not know much about Jesus and miracles - Clara Helen Rodrigues, Muscat

I used to work as a computer tutor but for the past one year I am at home. I have two children. My first retreat at Divine Retreat Centre was nineteen years ago. This is my third visit. I had resigned my job. My husband had lost his job and was not allowed to come down from Muscat. He did not have anybody to support him and he was not sure when he would be free to return. I attended a retreat at DRC and had a call that he would come down. I also had a good job offer. I did not know much about Jesus and miracles, did not know how to pray; but I used to pray for others and Jesus would bless me. We had brought a Hindu brother to DRC. He had pain in his ear and had taken treatment but he was healed here on the second day. I am attending this third retreat after Fr. Michael’s visit to Muscat. He had asked us to attend a retreat and we never thought we would be able to make it. Tickets were not confirmed until the last minute and somehow everything was done and we are here by God’s grace. I truly believe it was God’s plan for us in spite of my reluctance to take leave when school had just reopened. My seventeen-year-old daughter insisted we go and God made it possible. Praise and thank God.
