Add the following to your theme's CSS file:

.textwidget p {
        text-align: justify; // or whatever
}

When you go to Appearance | Editor, is Theme Styles or style.css not an option on the right side?  If not, please post a screenshot...

In a CSS file, it doesn't matter as long as you don't paste it in the middle of another block.  A CSS block looks like this:

selector {
  rules;
}

Just place the new block above or below an existing block.  If the CSS file has comments in it that divide things up into different areas (e.g. /* This is the Widgets Area */) then place the code under the correct section.

I placed it in there and it still does not justify.  Are  you able to check the code?

Your site is using W3 Total Cache so you need to empty all existing caches and rebuild after you make changes like this.  Right now you only see the cached stuff and the changes aren't there yet.
