“Brethren, I speak a human thing because of the infirmity of your flesh; for as you have yielded your members to serve uncleanness and iniquity unto iniquity, so now yield your members to serve justice unto sanctification (Rom. 6, 19).
“Justice treats her followers in a very different way; she does not degrade, she does not deceive them that keep her. She blesses them with peace of mind at every step they take in duty-doing; she is ever enriching their treasure of merit; she leads them safely to the perfection of love. The life of divine union then grows, almost spontaneously, on that high ground of justice; it rests on justice, as a flower does on its stem.
“‘He that possesseth justice,’ says Scripture, ‘shall lay hold on wisdom’: he shall find delights in that divine wisdom, which surpasses all that earth could procure (Eccles. 15, 1-8). “
