FROM THE NEW CATECHISM:

¢ Revelation is the self-disclosure of the living God and his plan to save us. Revelation shows us that God desires to have an intimate and loving relationship with everyone.
¢ The process of Revelation took centuries to unfold. God gradually communicated the divine mystery by words and deeds.
¢ From the beginning, God established a personal relationship with our first parents. After the Fall, he encouraged them with the hope of Salvation by promising them Redemption.
