Mother Teresa

Anyone who is able to read Mother Teresa's writings without getting somewhat uncomfortable is not listening very well to what she is saying.  Consider this passage from a collection of her teachings released under the book titled No Greater Love:

"None of us has the right to condemn anyone. Even when we see people doing bad and we don't know why they do it. Jesus invites us not to pass judgment. Maybe we are the ones who have helped make them what they are. We need to realize they are our brothers and sisters.  That leper, that drunkard, and that sick person are our brothers because they too have been created for a greater love. This is something that we should never forget. Jesus Christ identifies Himself with them and says, "Whatever you did to the least of my brethren, you did it to me."  Perhaps it is because we haven't given them our understanding and love that they find themselves on the streets without love and care."
It is very difficult to follow the news and not find ourselves condemning those we see doing evil to our fellow man.

It's not easy being a follower of Christ.
