The Sator-Rotas Square can be rearranged into the Pater Noster Cross, with two sets of The Alpha and Omega left over. Pater Noster is the Latin for Our Father. This was used during early Christianity as a secret reference to Christ, the Lord's Prayer, and as a magic talisman. However there is substantial evidence that both the- Sator-Rotas palindrome and the hidden anagram was used much earlier as a reference to Mithras the ancient Persian God who was also referred to as Our Father.The Alpha and Omega referred both to Christ who claimed at the resurrection to encompass all things as well as the much earlier Mithras, defender of light and truth, who was known of as the God of time... The Beginning and the End.
