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.

Memorial of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, virgin

Readings of the Day

Beloved, you are faithful in all you do for the brothers and sisters, especially for strangers;
they have testified to your love before the Church.
Please help them in a way worthy of God to continue their journey.
3 John 5-8

God our Father,
you called Frances Xavier Cabrini from Italy
to serve the immigrants of America.
By her example teach us concern
for the stranger, the sick and the frustrated.
By her prayers help us to see christ
in all the men and women we meet.
From Christian Prayer

Mother Cabrini was the first U. S. citizen
to be canonized a saint of the Church.
