A VISION OF MERCY.
I cried out for Judgment, because men had sinned against me seven times. And she appeared to me with her two-edged sword. Her scales were not empty, for in one side were tears and in the other blood; and when I laid hold upon her sword it cut my hands. So I ceased to cry to her. And while I looked, the Spirit of Man took the bandage from her eyes; and when she saw what was in her scales she dropped the sword and washed the scales in the spring of Brotherhood and took up the staff of Mercy. The Spirit pointed upward; she raised her eyes to heaven: Justice was transformed to Love.
