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.

Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Readings of the Day
Almighty and ever-present Father,
your watchful care reaches from end to end
and orders all things is such power
that event the tensions and the tragedies of sin
cannot frustrate your loving plans.

Help us to embrace your will,
give us the strength to follow your call,
so that your truth may live in our hearts
and reflect peace to those who believe in your love.

We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.

Evening Prayer, Antiphon for the Canticle of Mary:

There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and Jesus was there with Mary his mother.

From Christian Prayer
