“BE HONEST AND TRANSPARENT IN YOUR DEALINGS”
Most Rev. John Bonaventure Kwofie has called on Christians to be “honest and transparent in all dealings.” According to him, “dishonesty and a lack of transparency among Ghanaian workers has been the bane of our country.”
Archbishop Kwofie, the Apostolic Administrator of the Catholic Diocese of Sekondi-Takoradi said this in his homily during a pastoral visit to the St. Paul’s Pro-Cathedral, Sekondi on Sunday, February 16, 2020.
He bemoaned the lack of transparency that often surrounds issues of public interest in the country. Citing the example of the recent missing excavator scandal, the Archbishop urged Ghanaians especially those who hold public offices to “conduct their affairs with diligence, honesty and transparency.”
He also noted that “as Christians, our love for God should lead us to genuine love for our neighbor. We cannot claim to love God and express disdain for our brothers and sisters. When we do so, we falsify our worship of God.”
Archbishop Kwofie further added that the freedom we enjoy as Christians should cause us to become responsible men and women.
“God has given us freedom of choice. We can choose to do whatever we want. However, our choices come along with consequences which we cannot escape. Therefore, we ought to make our choices responsibly bearing in mind the inevitable consequences” He added.
