A Prayer from St. Albert Magnus: the austerity of false justice

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who seekest those who stray and receivest them when returning, make me approach to Thee through the frequent hearing of Thy Word, lest I sin against my neighbor by the blindness of human judgement, through the austerity of false justice, through comparing his inferior status, through too much trust in my merits or through ignorance of the Divine Judgement.  Guide me to search diligently each corner of my conscience lest the flesh dominate the spirit.
