The Very Rev Father Ebenezer Akesseh, Parish Priest of Christ the King Catholic Church, highlighted the communal faith and commitment to societal well-being demonstrated by the late Theresa Kufuor, encouraging citizens to emulate her example.
Speaking at a Vigil Mass held in memory of Mrs. Theresa Kufuor at Christ the King Catholic Church in Cantonment, Accra, Rev Fr Akesseh praised the former First Lady's unwavering faith and dedication to community progress and development.
“The beauty of life comes not through how we celebrate our victories, but how we go through the troubles of life. And in her case, her faith never waded. She believed in community progress and development and lived that faith,” expressed Rev Fr Akesseh.
The homily emphasized the communal dimension of faith, asserting that real faith is both personal and communal.
Rev Fr Akesseh urged Christians to demonstrate their faith, especially in positions of influence, citing the humility and service to the poor exhibited by the late Theresa Kufuor.
“When God raises you high, blesses the work of your hands, elevates you to a certain position, don't let your faith suffer,” he advised.
The Vigil Mass, attended by families, friends, sympathizers, and government officials, aimed to honour the memory of Mrs Theresa Kufuor. Distinguished personalities present included Madam Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, Chief of Staff, and Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo, former President of Nigeria.
