Bishop John Baptist Kakubi was born in 1929 in Mbarara, Ankole, in western Uganda, a part of the country to which his grandfather had migrated years earlier from Kooki in Buganda, central Uganda. Kakubi was to become the first black Catholic Bishop of Mbarara Diocese. In this book Bishop Emeritus Kakubi gives an account of the trajectory of his personal life and career. The book straddles eight decades, spanning his childhood, secular education, pastoral training both in Uganda and abroad, and his pastoral career. The account is rendered with humility and passion, and presents the highs and lows of a clerical journey that began with a big number of companions but that only a chosen few managed to complete. The book also pays tribute to a number of individuals, some of whom are still living, while others have since passed on. Many of the people written about come alive, and are easy to defi ne against the social and historical backdrop of the period in which they lived. We see Kakubi making steady progress, despite the hurdles that fate throws up in his path every now and then, from deacon to priest to lecturer to parish priest to rector to Diocesan Secretary for Education, readily taking some of the advances in stride, other times protesting that he is being given too much to cope with too soon. Then in 1991 he retires, after a hectic and rewarding thirty-one years as priest and bishop. At the end we see a life richly and purposefully lived, a life that should serve as a source of inspiration to many others. ISBN 978-9970-25-021-9
