Cusp-a point of transition, as from one historical period to the next;
the borders between the twelve astrological signs.
You are considered to be "on the cusp" if you were born
within a day or two of the beginning or end of any sign.

St Francis & the Sultan

An excellent article appears in the September 25 issue of Commonweal.

In it Paul Moses draws from his newly published book The Saint and the Sultan. The work investigates the time when Francis and a companion enter the Sultan's camp on a self-appointed peace mission. Once again we see Francis as a saint for our time.
