16th April


According to Christian philosophy, many temporal benefits can be obtained by prayer, without the need for miracles. This truth presupposes another truth, that when at the beginning God had chosen the order of events which follow one another, He had foreseen, from that very moment, all the prayers and the desires of the just, with the result that He had predisposed things in such a wonderful way in the universe that those prayers were answered in the natural succession of events by granting the requested favour or some greater favour. In this way God disposed that this or that benefit was in harmony with the universal good.

Theod. No. 256
