Hello again

I am a little confused. I know θέα means view and Θεία is aunt but...............

On the front of my little Greek/Englsh Liturgy prayer book it says at the top  Η ΘΕΙΑ ΛΕΙΤΟΥΡΓΙΑ.

Why is the similar to 'aunt' has it something to do with upper case?  Help please!

Θείος-θεία-θείο (3 genders) means divine.  The root of the word θείος is Θεός (God).

Θείος/θεία also mean uncle/aunt.

"Θεία Λειτουργία" means "Divine Liturgy", Mass.  I assume the capitalization is just to make the title stand out.
