How long will the coronavirus last?

This morning I asked the Lord, “How long will the coronavirus last?”

He replied, “Aiõnios.”

I hate it when he speaks Greek.

    If you don’t get the joke, don’t feel bad–you’re not the only one, not by a long shot. This article should help.

    To the “ages of ages” same word used for “everlasting punishment” in the sheep and goat parable. Augustine hated Greek as well; and cannot be more proud 🙂

    Yesterday Fifth Avenue was deserted when it should have been mobbed with spectators viewing the St. Patrick’s Day parade. And all bars and restaurants were closed by order of the Mayor, so there was no corned beef and cabbage nor pints of Guinness to be found.

    A strange Aion indeed!!

    Hopefully not the same as “In saecula saeculorum”!

    Is Charles Williams’s selection in The New Christian Year (1940) for the Third Saturday in Lent from Woodburn O. Ross’s edition, Middle English Sermons (Early English Text Society, Original Series, No. 209 from 1940) relevant, here?:

    “All angels, all saints, all the devils, all the world shall know all the deeds that ever thou didest, though thou have been shriven of them and contrite. But this knowledge shall be no shame to thee if that thou be saved, but rather a worship, right as we read of the deeds of Mary Magdalene to her worship and not to her reproof.”
