Is it simply that God's mercy exceeds his justice?

Basically.  I get the impression from Latins that they technically see God's justice and mercy being one and the same, but that if one did exceed the other, it would be his justice.  His justice must be perfect, but his mercy mustn't necessarily also be.

I'm suggesting it's precisely the opposite.  His justice is only vaguely so, but really it is mercy.  His mercy far exceeds his justice, evidenced by his even making salvation possible for us.
