Z is for Ω

The final letter in the Greek alphabet is omega, mentioned in the Christian scriptures three times in the Book of Revelation: "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says God, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."

As we come to the end of both Lent and this abecedarin, it seemed fitting to pair Z in the Arabic alphabet with Omega in the Greek one. Especially since Christians throughout the world begin this Sunday with a week of reflection on the Life of Christ, the alpha and the omega.

Thanks go out to all of you who've followed this little winter diversion of A to Z. It was fun on my end and I hope enjoyable on yours. Next week we'll be back to "normal"---whatever that is, as they say.

See our website, if you haven't already, for the lovely prayer card and obituary of our Benedict Irish, who left us at age 98--as quietly and peacefully as she lived the last few years.
