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.

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, virgin and doctor of the Church

Readings of the Day

"Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children,  you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.  Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “
Matthew 18:3-4

God our Father,
you have promised your kingdom
to those who are willing to become like little children.
Help us to follow the way of Saint Theresa with confidence
so that by her prayers
we may come to know your eternal glory.
from Christian Prayer

"Trying to do good to people without God's help is no easier than making the sun shine at midnight. You discover that you've got to abandon all your own preferences, your own bright ideas, and guide souls along the road our Lord has marked out for them. You mustn't coerce them into some path of your own choosing."
