Divine Vision Television Ministry

Divine Vision, the media ministry of Divine has become a powerful instrument of God in bearing the good news to every home across the globe. Presently gospel programmes from Divine Retreat Centre are being telecast round the clock on two channels – Goodness TV and Divine TV. It has a large following and viewership on the social media platforms. The faithfulness of God and the power of His word has been witnessed to us by the moving testimonies of people who have found healing, answers and spiritual experiences by participating in these programs.

Divine Vision is the continuation of Divine Centre’s ministry over the last 3 decades. After ministering to the thousands every week at the retreat centre, there was an urgent need to reach further. There were millions more who were desperately in need of the saving word of God in their darkest hours. The thousands who came for retreat indicated a need for support to continue their journey towards healing. The media ministry was God’s answer for us.

Through the television ministry we were able to fulfill the mission of God to be His witness “to the ends of the earth” (Lk 24:49). Jesus commissioned the apostles to “Go to all the world and preach the gospel to all creation” (Mark 16:15). The intent of God’s heart is that not one soul should be denied of the healing and saving experience the Word of God provides. “This is the will of the Him who sent me, that I should not lose any of those He has given me” (Jn 6:39). Our vision is that any person in any corner of the world, going through a desperate moment can tune in to the television and receive the comforting and powerful word of Jesus coming from Divine

Spiritual programs with anointed preaching and worship sessions, inspiring testimonies and enlightening teachings and discussions are aired continually through the Divine TV and Goodness TV channels, and the social media platforms such as the ‘Goodness TV’ and ‘Divine Retreat Centre Goodness TV’ YouTube channels. channel details The phenomenal developments in media and communications make this commission to reach the gospel to every person and every home across the globe, real and possible. St Pope John Paul II reminded the Church “Electronic media present ample opportunity for spreading the gospel.”

The Fathers of the Divine Retreat Centre inspired by this exhortation felt a personal call to start a Catholic gospel television ministry. The late Cardinal Varkey Vithayathil, the then Major Archbishop, strongly suggested that the Retreat Centre should start a Catholic gospel TV channel. This sentiment was echoed by other bishops and leaders of the Church.



On 2 August 2002 , Divine Vision Television ministry was launched with daily telecasts of gospel programmes in English titled “Streams of Grace” and in Malayalam as “Vachanadeepthi”. In a prophetic statement, the late Cardinal Varkey while blessing this ministry said, “I see Divine media ministry as the vision that took shape in the minds of many including myself for the dire need of a television proclamation of the gospel in the modern scenario of the Catholic Church to reach the good news of Jesus to every home.” Going by the massive response to the programmes, it was clear that God was inspiring our venture.
On 7 Nov 2008 , Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches came to the Divine Retreat Centre and blessed the Divine Vision ministry. At that time he encouraged the Vincentian Fathers “never to tire in their mission to proclaim the gospel to the ends of the earth.” Divine started telecasting 24 hours of gospel programs through the Divine Vision Network to the countries of UK, Europe, Middle East, USA and Canada. From 2011, Divine Vision started telecasting programs on Goodness TV for India, the Middle East and South Asia. From the beginning of the transmission of the television ministry, we have been receiving very encouraging support and response from the Bishops, priests and laity. It gives us great joy that the Divine Vision programs are watched by thousands in every country in the world. The testimonies that pour in remind us that God blesses this work touching and healing in marvelous ways.

Spiritual Partnership

“Do not settle for mediocrity” exhorted St Pope John Paul II. Divine Vision is committed to producing gospel programs of international television quality. As a non-profit Catholic television ministry, run by an indigenous congregation, the cost is daunting. Yet, it was clear from the inception that we could not put a price on the Word of God. We had to offer commercial free Catholic gospel programs. As we waited in prayer, the vision was clear. An ocean is made up by little drops of water. It is the generosity of thousands who have contributed on a regular basis that makes this ministry thrive and give glory to God.
