Our Lady & Star of the Sea Patroness of Sailors Invoked against the Stormy Seas of Life
O Mary, Star of the Sea, light of every ocean, guide seafarers across all dark and stormy seas that they may reach the haven of peace and light prepared in Him who calmed the sea.
As we set forth upon the oceans of the world and cross the deserts of our time, show us, O Mary, the fruit of your womb, for without your Son we are lost.
Pray that we will never fail on life's journey, that in heart and mind, in word and deed, in days of turmoil and in days of calm, we will always look to Christ and say, "Who is this that even wind and sea obey him?" Bright Star of the Sea, guide us!
Pope John Paul II
I was inspired to create this bracelet to give honor to Our most beautiful Virgin Mary in Her role as Star of The Sea- Stella Maris, which once invoked She will assist in our stormy seas of life.
I also find fascinating the sea life, with all the beautiful sea creations made by God that is why I added lots of charms and beads, including natural sea shells dyed in different colors to compliment this bracelet and enhance the theme.
