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.

The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak, 1863; Albert Bierstadt

Readings of the Day

Gospel antiphon at Morning Prayer

You inspire us, O Lord, to delight in praising you, because you made us for yourself; our hearts are restless until they rest in you.


renew in your Church
the spirit you gave Saint Augustine.
Filled with this spirit,
may we thirst for you alone
as the fountain of wisdom
and we seek you
as the source of eternal love.
From Christian Prayer

Saint Augustine and Saint Monica
