Tuesday 28A: "I am not ashamed"

"The one who is righteous by faith will live."

Justification is at the same time the acceptance of God's righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ. Righteousness (or "justice") here means the rectitude of divine love. With justification, faith, hope, and charity are poured into our hearts, and obedience to the divine will is granted us.

-- CCC 1991
