45. As the Divine Providence of the Lord has for its end a heaven from the human race, it follows that it has for its end the conjunction of the human race with Himself; concerning this see n. 28-31. It has also for its end that man should be more and more nearly conjoined to Him (see n. 32, 33), for thus man possesses heaven more interiorly. Further, it has for its end that man by this conjunction should become wiser (see n. 34-36); and that he should become happier (see n. 37-41), because it is from wisdom and according to it that man has heaven, and by means of wisdom has happiness also. Finally, it has for its end that man should appear more distinctly to himself to be master of himself, and yet to recognise more clearly that he is the Lord's (see n. 42-44). All these things are of the Divine Providence of the Lord, because all these things constitute heaven, which it has for its end.
