Featured Article: To Whom Do Black Lives Matter? Videos don’t lie - “In the age of dashboard video cameras and cell-phone-captured arrests, there is so much that we see and can’t ever unsee. Police in Staten Island putting Eric Garner in a choke hold, while he gasps, over and over, that he can’t breathe.* The Texas state trooper threatening to use his Taser on Sandra Bland (a driver he’d pulled over for the infraction of failing to signal when she changed lanes), shouting “I’m going to light you up!” Read Full Story

The Healing of Families
How to Pray Effectively for Those Stubborn Personal and Familial Problems

What exactly is Fr. Joseph's new book The Healing of Families about?

The Healing of  Families: How to Pray Effectively for Those Stubborn Personal and Familial Problems by Fr. Yozefu B. Ssemakula (Fr. Joseph)
Suggested Retail Price
$19.99 plus Tax and Shipping

Available at
Healing of the family's website at: 

Powerful prayers for deliverance from evil and healing of the family.

Through this book you will discover where it is from, how it is from there, and what you can do to unload it. Because you are in control even without knowing it. You will discover how Jesus your Savior came to free you from exactly this kind of captivity, which impedes you in your love and service of God and in your love and server of neighbor. For, as He tells us, "He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captivity and ... to let the oppressed go free..." (Lk 4:18)

If you have been having doubts about this prayer this is one very good book to read!

In his compelling new book, Fr. Joseph explains and shows you how God arranged our human life on certain specific systems, both physical and spiritual systems. Sometimes you will find people disqualifying generational healing prayer as not being Catholic. But when speaking about systems of human life, of what religion are they? Or what religion is human nature as made by God? We have all to gain to know how we were made, and for each bit of ignorance we pay a price. Think in the medical world, for example, how many people lost their lives in the long past because knowledge about a certain disease was still deficient? And each time knowledge of the human biological system advanced more and more lives were saved.

We have not only human biological systems to learn about but also human spiritual systems. The case in point is one of them. One basic system is our family system, which has both bodily and spiritual components. They were given to us by God as the best way He could arrange human life for the utmost good.

However, it is because we don't know enough sometimes about these fundamental systems, that the evil one takes advantage of us in them, infiltrates them and turns then around to work against us. And because they are fundamental, when the evil one invades them he causes fundamental problems, and sometimes fundamental damage. In fact that is why he goes for them, in order to have a considerable negative impact on our lives. This is why often people pray long and hard about certain issues in their lives and the lives of their families and exactly nothing happens. And it is not because God is not willing. God Himself says: " My people perish for lack of knowledge", (Hosea 4:6).

In Fr Joseph's book the systems that are relevant to this family healing prayer figure as The Five Cardinal Points. Complete with more than 30 pages on only Scriptures, (Chapters 10 and 11), this is a compelling 340-page book. We do not forget also the Lord's promise of the Holy Spirit who will keep teaching us all through ( Jn.16:12-13).

It is a resource that not only will put your final doubts to rest, but will enable you to immediately begin preparing to pray effectively for the healing of your family system because it can heal. For it is not satan, but Jesus, who came to save us, that has the final word about our lives - if we want it.
