This applies to the three previous petitions. It reminds us that everything in this world that is created and subject to time depends on another, uncreated world, where time does not exist and which is nothing less than the mystery of God. There the Father, source of the divine being, enjoys His infinite perfection in the mutual gift of the divine persons. In Him there is neither sadness nor resentment and before Him are the elect: he sees them as they will be after the resurrection. He sees the universe unified in Christ and His will fulfilled and glorified by all. We, who live in time, are in anguish because of an imperfect situation, in a world in labor where evil appears to triumph. We pray that everything may come about according to the initial plan of God, as it truly will.
