According to a statement issued by Bishop Gregory L. Parkes of the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee, Fr. Yozefu Ssemakula’s book, The Healing of Families, has not received an imprimatur; however, Father Ssemakula is “currently working to remedy the situation.”
The diocese found that the book contained “errors with his text in the area of theology” and these concerns have been brought to Fr. Ssemakula’s attention.
Bishop Parkes also commented on reviews he has received from persons who have attended seminars based on the book, saying some were very positive and some found his theological conclusions to be erroneous.
The book was originally published without ecclesial approbation but may receive an imprimatur if the errors are corrected.
