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.

Monday of the Fourth Week of Advent, Saint Peter Canisius

hear the prayers of your people.
May we who celebrate the birth of your Son as man
rejoice in the gift of eternal life hwen he comes in glory,
for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

O Radiant Dawn, splendor of eternal light, sun of justice:
Come, shine on those who dwell in darkness
and the shadow of death.

you gave Saint Peter Canisius 
wisdom and courage to defend the Catholic faith.
by the help of his prayers
mall who seek the truth rejoice in finding you
and ma all who believe in you be loyal in professing their faith.
