Word of the Season:

Here's the word-a-day for today -- I thought it extremely appropriate as we start the Triduum today:

anabiosis (an-uh-bi-O-sis) noun. A return to life after death or apparent death.

[From Greek anabiosis (coming back to life), from anabioun (to return to life), from ana- (back) + bio- (life).]

Somehow, "resurrected" sounds better than to say Jesus "anabiosed", doesn't it?
