Year A of a series of a book titled “Breaking the Word,” authored by Rev. Fr. Michael Kodzo Mensah, PhD has been launched at the St. James Catholic Church in Osu.
The book which offers detailed information and explanation on the Catholic Liturgy of the Word on Sundays was reviewed and formally launched by Dr. Mrs. Mary Anane-Mensah, the Chairperson of the Governing Council of the College of Counselling and Psychology, Accra.
The Special Guest of Honour at the event, Mr. Tony Oteng-Gyasi, CEO of Tropical Cables and Conductor and a former Board Chairman of the Governing Council of the University of Ghana in a statement expressed his admiration for the book and Fr. Mensah for his great insight brought bare in the book. He encouraged all faithfuls to purchase a copy of the book.
The launch was attended by Priests, Religious, Friends and Family of the author, the Choir and Seminarians of the St Paul’s Catholic Seminary, and Lay faithfuls of the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra and was chaired by Sir. Ralph Nwosu, CEO of Tescon Ghana Ltd, Labone.
Speaking in an interview with Angelus News, Rev. Fr. Mensah, PhD said ” Some times, you go to mass and there is something you don’t understand but you can’t raise your hands to ask, oh Father – I don’t understand. Other times you are reading the readings for Sunday’s and you really have questions, things are not clear and that is what this book is about. It is supposed to breakdown the readings for you to understand.”
He further indicated that ” The oratory at the St Paul has been the same since I entered the seminary in 1995 and think it needs a facelift and so the proceeds of the book will go into that.”
Breaking the Word (Year A) is the first batch of a series of a three volume work dedicated to the explanation of the scriptures for Sunday’s and Feast days according to the Catholic Liturgical Calender.
