Lent XXX

...our healing ought to manifest the true justice of Christ the Judge. But he is not going to judge us in person before the last and final judgment. For this reason he had to commission judges who would pass particular judgments before the end of time. Now these judges are like intermediaries between offended God and offending humanity, being close to Christ and appointed over the people.

[St. Bonaventure, Breviloquium, Monti, tr., Franciscan Institute Publications (St. Bonaventure, NY: 2005), p. 248.]
