Great book on healing and deliverance especially from the consequences of generational (family tree) sins. Once we raise our awareness of four main areas of satanic access to our family lines, we can put the prayers of deliverance into practice. These release us and our family members from bondage, disease and sickness that can otherwise be transmitted down three or four generations. Physical and spiritual healing follows. The best self-help book ever!!!

If you have conflict in your family or within yourself, then this book is a must-read ! Fr. Ssemakula not only brings to light the reasons for the problems we face but he gives you the tools to heal yourself and your family.
A treasure, indeed !

This is a hands on book on how to cleanse your family tree front generational bondage and the effects so sin. It hasn't been available on Amazon for some time. You can get it for twenty dollars at Fr Joseph's website Healingoffamilies.org. Great book.

Various clergy and laypersons who we know have either read this book, or have attended
seminars conducted by Fr. Ssemakula. There are reports of great physical, emotional and
spiritual healings in their families; despite the many healings reported, many concerns about
theological contradictions and new spiritual teaching in the book have also been expressed.
Because of their reports, The Fathers of Mary decided to take a closer look at the book.

Their primary concerns, stated as simply as possible, are the following:
1. A theological and spiritual work, like The Healing of Families, written by a Catholic
priest, should not be published without ecclesiastical approbation.
• Fr. Ssemakula's work was reviewed and rejected for Church approval. Bishop Parkes'
official statement: http://www.ptdiocese.org/documents/Bishop/Ssemakula.pdf.
Despite the rejection due to theological errors, he still published it.
• Fr. Ssemakula told attendees at the ‘clergy only conference’ in February of 2014, that
his bishop had told him “there was no need for an imprimatur,” and there were [other]
bishops who have offered him an imprimatur on his book. This was a misrepresentation of the truth; no imprimatur can be granted while there are theological errors. His book and ministry is currently under review once more by the
Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee.

2. There are serious problems with the way in which God is portrayed, making Him into a
helpless nice guy who is outmaneuvered by Satan. He seems to be portrayed as having
two distinct wills, which is theologically erroneous. This is a caricature of the God
whom we worship as Catholic Christians.

The style is somewhat conversational because it is a flow of his thoughts. Having just attended a seminar AFTER reading the book I realize why. He writes as he presents. Frankly EVERYONE should go to a seminar certainly not boring because Fr Joseph is very entertaining too with his animated style. There was a gentleman from Cameroon behind me who said that is the African way - you just go with the flow. I learn't so much I felt like I drank from a fire hydrant. I took so many notes I practically wrote a book myself.
What is so beautiful also is that he is open to new discoveries and is honest that there are some things he simply does not know the 'why' of yet.
The other great thing is that he is not proprietary about this he wants to teach people to go out and teach others so there is some real practical 'how to' explanations. Thank you Fr Joseph this has changed my life now I have a thirst to tell everyone.

I had already read the book, and because of the knowledge gained, ordered it for my grandson who is struggling with issues contained in this book. It is vey well written and contains much wisdom about the spiritual life. I highly recommend it for anyone dealing with family issues, whether large or small. Although written from a Catholic perspective, it is written for all faiths.
