The referencing of Mary as Stella Maris began in the 5th century. Seafarers invoked Mary as Stella Maris, Star of the Sea, because she was the calmer of storms. However, she is the calmer of storms in everyone’s lives.
As St. Bernard of Clairvoux explained, “If the winds of temptation arise; If you are driven upon the rocks of tribulation look to the star, call on Mary; If you are tossed upon the waves of pride, of ambition, of envy, of rivalry, look to the star, call on Mary. Should anger, or avarice, or fleshly desire violently assail the frail vessel of your soul, look at the star, call upon Mary.”
Wear this necklace as a reminder that Mary can calm the storms of our lives and she is the Star of the Sea we follow to Christ!
We love this necklace best paired with our Seashell Necklace or Miraculous Medal Necklace (pictured here in a 16")!
