Basic Catholic Cryptography

Basic Cipher Puzzle

The image about is a puzzle, it’s a very basic exercise in cryptography. I thought some might enjoy the challenge of uncovering an authentically Catholic message for our times by solving a puzzle. While I can’t promise money or even fleeting worldwide fame. I will blog the name of the first person to post the correct answer along with the solution, in the comments section of this post – I will also tweet that they were the first to solve the puzzle from my Twitter account (@cc70458) where you can also follow the Catholic Husband. Happy decrypting!

Good Luck and God Bless You,

      It’s a basic substitution cipher. One hint is that one symbol represents both a vowel or a consonant. This adds a bit of a twist, but should not be a show stopper.

    OK, yet another hint –
    Hint #1 One symbol represents a consonant or a vowel
    Hint #2 The last word in the puzzle is “amen”

    Hope this helps –

    Each symbol represents two letters? For example, the last shape (like a backward h) represents “en”, of Amen?
