The ineffable moral Law of God calls to all humans. It is not a question of performance, but of commitment. This thing is the nature of love itself; you can’t be drawn to the moral character of God without being overwhelmed by His compassion for His Creation.
We sometimes have to fight the Devil as he drives people against that love. In the process of resisting the darkness, it is inevitable that things we do may serve to bring pain and suffering to those who are wedded to Darkness. There is little we can do about that because we are fortunate indeed to be free ourselves, merely to exercise control over own reactions, never mind whether others can respond to compassion by moving toward the Law. There is no explanation — we have to do it because we simply must.
The justification is the Cross.
