How does this passage tie to a theme from a Tale of Two Cities?

Quote: I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free, in their triumphs and defeats, through long years to come, I see the evil of this time and of the previous time of which this is the natural birth, gradually making expiation for itself and wearing out. I see that child who lay upon her bosom and who bore my name, a man winning his way up in that path of life which once was mine. I see him winning it so well, that my name is made illustrious there by the light his. It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest I go to than I have ever known.
