Alpha and Omega at Phi:
Dear brothers and sisters, imitate me. Watch closely those who already imitate me. But there are also many others who abhor the idea of the cross - the very concept of self sacrifice, mission and service. I have often warned you of them, and I weep that I must warn you again. Their end is chaos, entropy and dissolution. The serve their stomachs and worship their taste-buds. They glorify the fame of shame. Their minds are solely of the mud and flesh.
They are not like us - we are citizens of heaven. From heaven, our Savior the Christ will return. He will transform our transgress, transfix our intransigence, transfigure us into the transfinite!
So my brethren, you who I love and long for, my crown of joy, be brave and stand firm. Continue as one of the Way.
