Lockdown Homilies from Fr Jean-Marie Kuzituka Did'ho
184 Days of Empty Churches
This collection of Lockdown Homilies offers insightful reflections on the Gospels assigned for the celebration of the daily Holy Eucharist during Lockdown in Year A. These reflections are meant to help Christians to pray, recalling those days of confinement. These reflections are brief, easy to read, yet insightful and practical. 184 Days of Empty Churches links daily life with the Gospel in reflection, prayer and behaviour. Every weekday homily in this book ends with a short prayer to help the reader to enter into a mood of meditation, praise and worship. The author invites us to pray and reminds us that in the House of the Lord, there are no holidays, no confinement or lockdown.
More books by Father Jean-Marie
Fr. Jean-Marie Kuzituka Did'ho is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Johannesburg. He holds a Master's degree in Social Anthropology, and it is from these studies that his books are derived.
His first book "Christianity in a Cosmopolitan City" is a look at the creation of Cosmopolitan cities in South Africa as a result of the influx of people from the rural areas of the country, and more especially, from other African countries.
The book looks at what impact the Church can have on a growing and sometimes violent divide between locals and immigrants, and examines what the Scriptures have to say on the subject.
His second, book, "The Trial of African Solidarity" is a more in-depth look at the problem. In this book, Fr Jean-Marie takes "African Solidarity" to court in the light of the tragic xenophobic events that have unfolded in South Africa in the past number of years.
All these books are available online at the SA Catholic Online Store (click on the banner below) with the author himself, the editor and at some bookstores in Johannesburg.
