“As Catholics and Christians, it is imperative not to seek our own interest in offering help to our neighbours, but we must extend these gestures wholeheartedly without conditions attached to it to enjoy life”, he added.
Rev Fr Owusu-Ofori stressed that such acts break the good relationship with God and called on all to respect and love neighbours with all their heart, soul and mind.
The Catholic Priest made the call in Accra in a sermon at St Kizito Catholic Church, Nima to thank God for his 10th anniversary in the priesthood.
He spent four years at St Kizito Catholic Church before he was transferred to his new parish.
The Reverend Father said the world was characterised by relationship and it behooved on Catholics to establish an intimate relationship with God and their neighbours to enjoy God’s love and mercies.
He urged people in authority to accord their subject with dignity and not take advantage to molest and oppress them for their parochial interest, for God listened to their cry when they called upon Him.
Rev Fr Owusu-Ofori entreated Catholics to see the good in their neighbours and not always focusing on the negatives as a sign of good relationship with fellow Christians.
“Let us avoid attributing negative acts to our neighbours but more importantly seek the good in that person so that you do not plan evil against the person”.
He posted that establishing good relationship with God empowered Christians to be strong in the Lord and stand the test of any temptations that might come their way.
