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.

The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak, 1863; Albert Bierstadt

Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Readings of the Day

Jean-Francois Millet, The Sower, 1850. Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

The kingdom of heaven may be likened
to a man who sowed good seed in his field.
                                             Matthew 13:24

let the gift of your life
continue to grow in us,
drawing us from death to faith, hope, and love.
Keep us alive in christ Jesus.
Keep us watchful in prayer
and true to his teaching,
till your glory is revealed in us.

                                             Christian Prayer
