I work with teenagers and children. There are ways we even have to put the words of God in ways they understand. The same way we were taught chatechism is not the same way we do it now a day. The same way I started teacher twenty something years ago is not the same way I do it now. We need to use different ways and tools to do it. Each set of child comes to us with a different story. Some of them are good, but some of them are not. May be it was a child whose life has been devasted by adults action that painted these people's face. By celebrating mass with their face painted, they were trying to make them feel better. Some times children are better than us adult, they treat others with compassion. I guess that's what Jesus said we have to be like children again in order to enter the kingdom of God.
Only God has the right to judge others. Our right is to pray for others who we think are doing the wrong thing. Only God can change us with his love, not us. Our priests say that instead of talking to one of our loved ones about God. Instead we should be talking to God about them. We already had an encounter with God and little by little he has been changing us into the people he wants to be. We also want the samething for our loved ones.
