Love without justice degenerates into anarchy. Justice without love becomes tyranny (as in Marxist regimes). Love and justice must be united in the divine holiness, the ultimate criterion for moral and social endeavor…Justice must be related not only to love but also to piety, which is the sense of God’s holiness. We should therefore be equally alert to the polarity between piety and justice.

– Donald G. Bloesch
