The Judge is even now in Session.

"O admirable Power of the Cross! O unspeakable Glory of the Passion, in which is the Judgement Seat of the Lord, and His Sentence passed against the World, and the Authority of the Crucified!"

If, with these magisterial words of S Leo, we thought and spoke of the Lord's Cross as as His Judgement Seat in the face of the World, how powerful that would be!

I've read on good authority that The Judge was in session, even while he rested in His mother's womb.

Moreover, I think it likely that S Leo had John 12:31 in mind when he said this.
