Welcome to our Faith Renewal Series that is exploring The ABCs of Being Catholic. We are invited on a journey through the alphabet to explore Catholic terms, beliefs, and traditions. In this post we focus on the letter “Z”.

I began this journey through the ABCs with Adoration, and I’m going to end it with Zeal, with ‘love in action’.
Zeal is manifested when we cooperate with the Holy Spirit and seek to advance the Kingdom of Christ. When we have nurtured, grown and developed our relationship with God to the point that we desire to bring to Him all who have strayed from Him. When our whole being shouts from the mountain tops that we are loved by God and that we want only to have the rest of the world know that unconditional love too.
Let’s continue the journey with Zeal. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to act through us. Let’s let the Ten Commandments, the Eight Beatitudes, the Seven Sacraments, the Seventy-Three books of the Bible and the One True God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, permeate through every fibre of our being.
Then, let’s fall to our knees in humble adoration and there proclaim with true Zeal so everyone can hear us:
My God, How Great Thou Art
