"I assure you, brothers, the gospel I proclaimed to you is no mere human invention. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I schooled in it. It came by revelation from Jesus Christ." —Galatians 1:11-12

We should thank the Lord that we are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses for Jesus (Heb 12:1). We thank the Lord for all those who have taught us the faith. We thank Him especially for our parents.

Nevertheless, our faith ultimately depends not on our parents, teachers, pastors, or anyone else. Our faith is not so much a matter of schooling but of the divine "revelation from Jesus Christ" (Gal 1:12). The main question from Jesus to us is not: "Who do other people say that I am?" but "Who do you say that I am?" (see Mt 16:13-15) God has no grandchildren. No one enters His kingdom merely because they are related to His children. It's not good enough to know those who know God. We ourselves must know God (see Jn 17:3).

Put yourself in ideal circumstances for the Lord to keep revealing Himself to you personally. Pray at a certain time each day. Read daily the teachings of the Church in the Bible, Catechism of the Catholic Church, and from the Pope. Try to pray the Mass and receive Jesus in Communion each day or as often as possible. Order your life to maximize your opportunities to receive Jesus' divine revelation to you.

Prayer: Jesus, may I sit at Your feet and listen to Your words (Lk 10:39).
Promise: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself." —Lk 10:27
Praise: Martha encourages those who ask for her prayers to pray with her at that very moment.
