Chapter Summary

The Good certainly is useful in and of itself to lead us to our end. Something though is useful in and of itself for leading us to the end of blessedness in a two-fold way: one way directly and principally, according to the merit by which we merit blessedness by obeying God, and thus the petition: Thy Will Be Done; and the other way we are led to the end of blessedness is instrumentally, as if helping us to merit, and thus the petition is given Our Daily Bread. God's name is 'admirable' by his incarnation, which was the most miraculous of all miracles. God's name is called 'counselor' in preaching; 'God' in the workings of miracles; 'mighty' in his passion; 'everlasting father' in his resurrection; and 'prince of peace' in his ascention. Therefore the name of God is called the sacramental complex of our redemption.

Keywords: ascention; God; resurrection; sacramental complex; Thy Will Be Done
