WHO ART IN HEAVEN
 
1. "Who art in heaven" in general signifies heaven where God dwells, and 
also the good things of heaven. Explain how this is an incentive for us to 
use this prayer.
 
2. We are told that "in heaven" also refers to devout persons in whom God 
dwells by sanctifying grace. Explain this, and cite the references from the 
Scriptures in support of it.
 
3. St. Thomas says that the phrase "who art in heaven" gives us confidence 
in our prayer because of God's power, our familiarity with God, and because 
we feel our petitions are good for us. Explain this and discuss it.
