St. Peter confesses not just what Christ is (the Messiah), but who He is, confession which our Lord explains did not come from any earthly thing, from His Heavenly Father. Our knowledge and experience of who Jesus is becomes possible only by God's free gift of faith. Earthly realities cannot tells us about who Jesus is; since God wants us to know that, He makes it possible through the gift of faith. Faith is a very personal gift. We can receive only from the three Divine Persons, God, and it reveals these Persons to us more and more.
- Pray an act of faith each day
