Justice on God’s part is what God does for man, which is, ultimately, salvation. On man’s part, justice is the whole piety, the whole devoutness, the holy life, the whole response of man to God, who grants salvation.
The whole point in spiritual life is whether the grace of God is present and active in our soul; whether God’s Spirit comes; if God communicates with us and speaks to us and if we get to hear Him; whether there is a “contact” between us.
Man has huge, tremendous abilities in him. These abilities have become useless, though, because as things happened, in the long run, self-love, the old man and the ailing conditions of man aren’t indulged. And, as a result, man doesn’t do justice to himself.
