Is it better to answer Injustices with Mercy, or with Justice?

Forgiveness!

But you need to be more specific.  Are you speaking individually, ie injustice done to ourselves, or 'corporate' injustice, or injustice in law, or perceived injustice, or something else . . .

Injustice needs to be corrected. I would call that justice. It doesn't necessarily make that correction unmerciful to anyone though.

Depends on the injustice. Some injustices are more unequal than others.

But by and large justice in a merciful sort of way which may or may not include an element of forgiveness.

Are you talking global, local, personal?

I've been waiting for justice to catch up with this one.

A monk whom another brother had wronged came to see Abba Sisoes and said to him, “My brother has hurt me and I want to avenge myself.”

The old man pleaded with him saying, “No, my child, leave vengeance to God.”

He said to him, “I shall not rest until I have avenged myself.”

The old man said, “Brother, let us pray.”

Then the old man stood up and said, “God, we no longer need you to care for us, since we do justice for ourselves.”

Hearing these words, the brothers fell at the old man’s feet, saying, “I will no longer seek justice from my brother; forgive me, abba.”
