Liturgical Season: Easter



Wednesday 13th May 2020 - Star of the Sea



“Mary means Star of the Sea, for as mariners are guided to port by the ocean, so Christians attain to glory through Mary’s maternal intercession.”

Saint Thomas Aquinas


Life can be compared to a boat at sea. When the waters are calm and smooth, we are happy and can enjoy a wonderful journey but sometimes the waters can be stormy and choppy and we must work really hard to return safely to land. Those storms are the temptations and failures in our lives which keep us separate from God. Mary is always there gently guiding us safely back to land, back to our Loving Father.


Prayer: Father, give your people the joy of continual health in mind and body. With the prayers of the Virgin Mary to help us, guide us through this life to eternal happiness. Amen.
