Catholic Bishop unhappy with some priests
The Catholic Bishop of the Sekondi-Takoradi Diocese, Most Reverend John Bonaventure Kwofie, has expressed displeasure about the unpatriotic attitude of some of the Priests in the diocese.
He said the Priests either said things or peddled falsehood about others, which was religiously wrong.
Bishop Kwofie expressed these sentiments at Half Assini in the Jomoro District of the Western Region, when he delivered a sermon during Mass at the Saint Patrick Catholic Church in Half-Assini,to commomerate the”Sekondi-Takoradi Diocese Co-workers appreciation day.”
The day seeks to create a platform for the Religious and Priests in the diocese to interact and thank God, and reward deserving parishioners.
The programme organised by the Church under the sponsorship of the Bishop, award over 150 Priests of the Diocese with souvenirs including Clothes, Wall Clocks and Vestments.
Bishop Kwofie said “It pains me when I see or hear a brother Priest saying something that was untrue about another. It pains me when I hear a brother Priest peddling information that is not true.
According to Most Reverend Kwofie, the Ministry is a community or fraternity that should encourage people to be helpful to one another and not to lead them astray.
He said the Priests had made a choice which was superior and should therefore stand firm.
Bishop Kwofie urged them to avoid weakened elements and wicked minds who would try to lead them astray, by practising what they preached.
