Angelic Wisdom about Divine Providence 215
215. I. TEMPORAL THINGS RELATE TO DIGNITIES AND RICHES, THUS TO HONOURS AND GAIN IN THE WORLD. There are many temporal things, yet they all relate to dignities and riches.

Angelic Wisdom about Divine Providence 216
216. II. ETERNAL THINGS RELATE TO SPIRITUAL HONOURS AND WEALTH, WHICH PERTAIN TO LOVE AND WISDOM IN HEAVEN.

Angelic Wisdom about Divine Providence 227

In ord...
