RESPECT FOR OTHERS
With wisdom, Daniel exposed
the lie in the false accusation brought against him by his thorough
examination. It is a mark of prudence to convict the criminals by the
witness of their own words and a sign of justice to give over the guilty to
punishment and to save the innocent.
Wisdom and justice are
inseparable; in fact, all the virtues are inseparable. Temperance is
despising pleasure, fortitude is the ability to undergo labours and dangers,
prudence makes us choose what is good and useful; justice makes us guardian
of another's rights and of our own.
St. Ambrose, Duties of the
Clergy, Chapter IX, Book II
