Chapter Summary

The understanding of evil as the evil of future punishment would mean this petition would overlap with the second petition, in which one say Thy kingdom come, for when one seek one of opposites, the other is excluded. The exposition remains therefore that the evil in this petition is interpreted only as referring to the evil of present misery, the evil in which one is already working, which is according to Bernard three-fold, for we are easily seduced with respect to our reason; one is weak in carrying out our responsibilities, with respect to the concupiscence; and one is fragile to resist evil with respect to our irritability. Austerity, according to Andronicus, is a virtue that excludes all superfluous and inordinate desires, which are able to impede man in the performance of virtuous works. Continence is the virtue by which one resists depraved lusts which vigorously arise.

Keywords: Austerity; Continence; evil; petition; Thy kingdom come
