Prayer of the Month


My kidney transplant was called off - Victor & Teresa D'Souza, Gurgaon

We both live in the USA. We have strong faith and are proud to be Catholics. I, Victor, had renal failure. The doctor advised a kidney transplant. When I came to New Delhi in 2007, my kidney problem peaked. My creatinine level was 5+. In January 2008, my son Neville who visits Divine Retreat Centre often took us there to participate in a retreat. After the retreat when I went back to Boston my nephrologist fixed a fistula in my left arm and ordered a complete complex procedure for transplant for both my kidneys. Having been inspired at DRC I continued to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet every day at 3.00 pm. when it is televised on Catholic TV. My creatinine level kept dropping without any medication and today the level has stabilised. The kidney transplant has been called off and I did not undergo any hemodialysis. My wife Teresa had an eye operation and it was giving trouble after operation. The doctor said that she had to undergo a laser treatment. During the same retreat Jesus healed her and she did not require the laser treatment. We both believe that Jesus is the greatest healer. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits — who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the Pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy” (Ps 103:2-4). At this retreat by listening to the Word of God, my faith increased and I am determined to read and learn the scripture thoroughly and minister. After the physical healing service I felt my chest ease up; it used to feel heavy. Praise the Lord.
