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.

Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Readings of the Day

Jesus went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When it was evening he was there alone.

 Matthew 13:23

we come, reborn in the Spirit ,
to celebrate our sonship in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Touch our hearts,
help them grow toward the life you have promised.
touch our lives,
make them signs of you love for all men.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.

from Christian Prayer

James Tissot
