The title Alpha and Omega brings to mind the ancient teaching of exitus et reditus. We come from God and we will return to God. We are made in God's image and we will find our fulfillment in complete union with God. As Jesus and the Father are one, we hope one day to be one with the Trinity.
For Reflection: Is Jesus the beginning and the end of my day? Is he Lord of my past, my present and my future? Am I on the path to unity with God? (For further study, see Isaiah 44:6, 48:12-13; Revelation 4:8, 21:6 and 22:13.)
Let us pray. Jesus, you are the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. You were present at the creation and you will be present at the end. You chose to become one of us at your birth, bringing salvation by your life, death and resurrection. You are worthy of all praise.
