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.

Readings of the Day

Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed.
Mark 1:35 

Prayer is the most essential ingredient to holiness no matter what the vocation. In public prayer, we join others to offer communal worship. In private prayer we maintain, clarify, and nourish our fundamental relationships with God, others, and the world. There is no holiness without prayer.
Father Hector LaChapelle
