Friday, Lent IV: "God is his Father"

For if the just one be the son of God, he will defend him
and deliver him from the hand of his foes.

In the last petition, "but deliver us from evil," Christians pray to God with the Church to show forth the victory, already won by Christ, over the "ruler of this world," Satan, the angel personally opposed to God and to his plan of salvation.
-- CCC 2864
