Just wondering, I have met so many Catholics that portray very few characteristics of a Christian, and personally, I want to be a Christian before anything else. They seem to get so caught up in the prayers, mass and novenas, that they forget to be kind, forgiving, and non-judgemental. What is your opionion on this topic?
I am posting anonymous because this is a very personal thought.

What good does it do to go to church every Sunday, pray the rosary, go to holy hour and still be mean to people?
Nothing - but why single Catholics out for such accusations? There are hypocrites in all religions - why claim that someone being Catholic makes them more likely to be hypocritical? And how is your 'observation' and different than saying something like "The African-Americans I observe are all all ignorant and so caught up in the welfare system rather than trying to do an honest day's work". You're still being judgemental in how you formed the question by making "Catholics" somehow different from all other "Christians".
