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.

Tuesday of the Fourth Week of Advent

Readings of the Day

When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting,

the infant leaped in her womb,
and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit,
cried out in a loud voice and said,
“Most blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
And how does this happen to me,
that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

O Radiant Dawn,

splendor of eternal light,
sun of justice:
come, shine on those
who dwell in darkness
and the shadow of death.
