Thannickal, Joseph

Joseph Thannickal M.A. ’02 writes that his book, Gifted Journey, has been published in India by Pauline Media. "It deals with finding Meaning in life and enriching our spirituality. Some people have found it a good bridge between Viktor Frankl's contribution of meaning in life and Catholic Spirituality. I enjoyed writing it, and I want to thank many people who have given me positive feedback. By the way, St.Paul's has just told me they are going for a second print. It is not available in the US. Anyone wanting to order a copy, write to me at jthann123@gmail.com and I shall try to get a copy to you. Thanks and God Bless you all in all you do. Fr. Joe Thannickal Bangalore."
