The is the motto for Omega Psi Phi fraternity. The letters Omega Psi and Phi are supposed to be the abbreviation for this term. I would like to know how to write out the full greek term.

I philia ine to alpha kai to omega tis psihis
Explanation:
The only way that all three letters could fit into the Greek translation of your motto is: I philia ine to alpha kai to omega tis psihis (η φιλία είναι το άλφα και το ωμέγα της ψυχής). But there's also an alpha (first letter of the Greek alphabete) in this.

Take care!

Ω μεγάλη τή ψυχή φιλία (εστί)


Explanation:
Something like that. in proper ancient greek (there may be a well known saying that I ignore) that would mean "How important to the soul friendship is ". In latin characters this sounds like "Omegali ti psichi philia (esti)" The article (ti) can be ommited and the verb (esti) is usually ommited. This leaves a phrase with 3 words that fit to the ΩΨΦ.
