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.

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

you prepared the Virgin Mary

to be the worthy mother of your Son.

You let her share beforehand
in the salvation
Christ would bring by his death,

and kept her sinless
from the first moment of her conception.
Help us by her prayers
to live in your presence without sin.
From Christian Prayer
