MESSAGE OF THE PATRON
My dear loving people of God,“The word which I speak to you is Spirit and Life (John 6:63). My intention to start this Marian retreat centre is to create a Eucharistic culture in the world. It is to renew the whole earth with Word of God and Sacraments. We have to develop an ecclesiastical spirituality, keeping all the traditions of the Church. A spirituality centred on Holy Qurbana and the Church. And we have to lead a holy life and fulfil the will of the Father. Today people are going after money, fame and name. As we are the people of God we shall not do that, but we have to obey His commandments and lead a right and holy Christian life. Marian retreat centre has become a powerful renewal centre for all people all over the world. And through this centre let everybody enjoy God’s love and peace. Here let us revive our faith and listen to the Word of God. Let the Word shall enlighten us. You become sons and daughters of God and true representatives of Christ in this world. Only His life shall enliven you.
You may all love this retreat centre and become a member of this spiritual and prayerful atmosphere. I am grateful to Rev. Fr. Joseph Thoonkuzhy, who has given TMTM trust to our diocese and gave his property to start this Spiritual centre. And I am blessing Fr. Dominic Valanmanal to direct this retreat centre according to the will of God and the will of the Church. Let God bless everybody who co-operate with Fr. Dominic for the growth of this centre.I pray that the Holy Spirit will guide your steps and enlighten you.

MESSAGE OF THE DIRECTOR
“Praise the Lord, my soul; I shall praise the Lord all my life, sing praise to my God while I live” (Psalms 146:1-2).My dear children of God, in the name of Jesus and Mother Mary I invite all of you to this House of God and may receive his Divine Mercy with the Intercession of Maria Rosa Mystica.“God has over looked the times of ignorance, but now he demands that all people everywhere repent, because he has established a day on which he will judge the world with justice’ through a man he has appointed, and he has provided confirmation for all by raising him from the dead.”(Acts 17:30-31).
“Or do you hold his priceless kindness, forbearance, and patience in low esteem, unaware the kindness of God would lead to repentance? By your stubbornness and impenitent heart, you are storing up wrath for yourself for the day of the wrath and revelation of the just judgment of God, who will pay everyone according to his works; eternal life to those who seek glory, honor, and immortality through perseverance in good works, but wrath and fury to those who selfishly disobey the truth and obey wickedness.”(Romans 2:4-8)Let us hear the word of God and fill our lives with graces. Let us be with him in the midst of all kinds of sufferings and temptations. If we obey his commandments we will enjoy heavenly blessings in our whole life. Those who want to enjoy Gods love and care they have to love God and fulfill his will.
Rev. Fr. Dominic Valanmanal
