Letting Love speak

How do we judge others' behaviour without being judgmental? St. Paul makes it quite plain that we can only correct with love. Parents do this all the time with children. Loving correction is harder in an adult Christian community. For most, it will be a silent activity. My Catholic life must be one in which Love itself can speak through me to others without judging. It is very difficult to be such a person. If I focus on being holy then I will hear Jesus Christ speaking to me of my own failings.
