Message from the Director-"We are Conquerors"
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John10,10)
Vincentian retreats are formed to help the people of God to grow in their faith as to receive the salvation given by Jesus. Our preaching’s and teachings are based on the Word of God and the teachings of the Catholic Church. Word of God is Jesus Himself. (John1,1). Hence every Word has got life and spirit. (John6,63). Our retreats help a person to grow in life especially in times of a death culture and to immerse oneself in the Holy Spirit especially in times the evil spirits that distract to destroy, steal and kill a person(John 10,10). Pope Francis affirms the existence of devil and his traps. Pope speaks about three stages of attack; First “the temptation begins subtly but then it grows and increasingly grows stronger”. Then “it infects someone else … it spreads to another and seeks to take root in the community”. Finally, “to calm the soul, it seeks to justify itself”. In short: it “grows, spreads and justifies itself”((by L'Osservatore Romano, Weekly ed. in English, n. 16, 18 April 2014). We are not losers but conquerors in Christ Jesus. Vincentian retreats help you to be conquerors(Romans8,37).
