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.

Blessed John XXIII

Readings of the Day

Today is the date assigned for the liturgical celebration of Blessed John XXIII, not 3 June, the anniversary of his death (as would be usual), but 11 October, the anniversary of his opening of the Second Vatican Council.
