Guwahati, Nov. 17. Guwahati: 16 November 2020. YOU'RE GOD'S WONDER, 52 Reflections and Prayer- Practices for a Life in the Spirit by M. Anthuvan Tharsis, SDB was released on 16 November 2020 at Guwahati by Rev. Fr. Januarius S Sangma, Salesian Provincial of ING, Province of Mary Help of Christians.
Fr M. Anthuvan Tharsis SDB, presently Provincial Secretary and Rector of Don Bosco Provincial House is also Reader of the Salesian Pontifical University, Rome, Italy, and teaching at Divya Daan: Salesian Institute of Philosophy, Nashik, India as a Visiting Faculty. He also occupies the Chair of Modern and Contemporary Western Philosophy at the same institute. He completed his PhD from the Salesian Pontifical University Rome in 2014.

Anthuvan has dedicated his book to all the Salesians of Don Bosco and the Missionaries from abroad and from India who worked in North East India, and to their spiritual legacy - as the Salesians in northeast are preparing to celebrate the centenary of their arrival to northeast.
Introducing the book, Dr (Fr) P.D. John, Director of Don Bosco Publications and Communications, said that the author begins his book with the earth-shattering statement, ''God does not love you because you're good; God loves you because God is good.'' The author portrays his conviction that God's love is absolutely real and that His love doesn't depend on your worthiness! You are saved entirely by God, not by anything you do or can do. You are loved totally by God in whatever condition you are now. You cannot merit God's love and salvation by your good works. The author just wants the readers to come to the realization, that you are ''You are God's wonder. You are God's masterpiece. You are God's marvel. You are God's beloved child''.

The book is nothing but a presentation of spiritual themes for reflection for a life in the Spirit. There are 52 spiritual reflections contained in the book. Since there are 52 weeks in a year, one reflection could be used per week.

Every chapter (reflection) ends with a ''Prayer'' that has two parts: an ''Intercession'' and an ''Action plan,'' to enable the reader to get in touch with one's own heart and the heart of God. The author encourages you to start keeping a spiritual journal for this purpose.  

The author does not claim either originality or a logical flow of chapters or themes but presented spiritual reflections right from the heart for personal benefit and enrichment. Fr Anthuvan has widely used the writings of other authors like Richard Rohr, Henri Nouven and Pope Francis.

The book is published by Don Bosco Publications, Guwahati with ISBN Number: 978-81-946057-2-0. The book contains 340 pages and is priced at Rs. 300. The book is available at Don Bosco Media and Publications, Panbazar, Guwahati - 781001, Assam or email at or
