Pointing the finger

With reference to my last post in which I took a side-swipe at secular culture, I wanted to state a reservation which I have. It is one thing to challenge and criticise secular culture, but it is another thing to challenge and criticise those who live secular culture. The former can be justified, but not the latter. As Catholics we cannot attack people who do not know Christ live and who consequently live far from Him. We have no right to judge. Nor is the new evangelisation a time for Catholics to be self-righteous. Christ may indeed need to teach many people (including ourselves), but it is for us to hold people before Him in our hearts.
