Transcript of Copy of ZEAL FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS

Four kinds of "good" people.
Those who do no evil,
yet
do not devote themselves faithfully to doing good.

Those who refrain from evil
and
also devote themselves to frequent good deeds,
yet
, while they do not neglect to do what they can, they see no need to do more than that.
Four kinds of "
good
" people.
Those who detest and avoid wrongdoing, fervently commit themselves to whatever good they can do, and desire greater personal holiness, yet lack equal concern for the holiness of others.

Those who avoid wrongdoing, practice virtue, are afire with zeal of personal righteousness,
and
have zeal for winning souls.
Zeal for righteousness stems from the very basis of our Christianity, namely, love of God and of neighbor.
A person who loves God not only desires to enjoy his goodness and be close to him, but loves to see his will accomplished, his worship carried out and his honor exalted. He wants all people to know, love, serve and honor God more that anything else.

A person who loves his neighbor desires not only health and prosperity for him, but even more, eternal salvation.
Love of God and neighbor should cause us to mourn if God is dishonored or disobeyed, and if others are not in right relationship with Him.


Although all Christians should love their neighbor, this love for others is especially necessary for those who are leaders.
Areas of concern (exercise of zeal) in our own lives and in the lives of our household members.
Growth in love for God and for neighbor. Selflessness.

Active participation in the life of Church. Frequent reception of the sacraments.

"Encourage" is a compound of two words: "en" = to put in or into, and "courage" = confidence, strength.
