What is justice.... Saint Augustine-the city of god?

Justice, according to Augustine, is one of the four virtues-- all of which are different forms of loving God. They are: Justice, Prudence, Temperance, and Fortitude. "Justice is that virtue which to each give his due" I think Augustine means to say that everything happens for reason. For example, if a town is flooded by deep water, it might be because the city was in need of punishment. Augustine goes on to say that true justice can only take place in the Heavenly City of God. It is all a bit ambiguous. P.S. I just dug a little deeper, and in The City og God, Augustine says perfect justice is being able to love things (and god) according to their merit. In other words, do not love money or your children with the same love you give to god. Augustine says that there are two types of love, enjoyment love, and use love. We love god with enjoyment love, we love money with use love. But when we love money with enjoyment love or vice versa- this is injustice. Hope this helps.
