Justice blesses with peace

“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). “

Dom Gueranger, The Liturgical Year, Seventh Sunday after Pentecost
