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.

Third Sunday of Advent

Readings of the Day

John said:
“I am the voice of one crying out in the desert,
‘make straight the way of the Lord,’

as Isaiah the prophet said.”
Some Pharisees were also sent.
They asked him,
“Why then do you baptize
if you are not the Christ or Elijah or the Prophet?”
John answered them,
“I baptize with water;
but there is one among you whom you do not recognize,
the one who is coming after me,
whose sandal strap I am not worthy to untie.”

John the Baptist                                                                        Isaiah
Who are the prophets in our day pointing to the Lord?
We may be surprised to see who they are and what they are telling us. Are we drawn to them and their message. Or will we reject them as prophets have been rejected in the past?
