Star of the Sea Rosary
Regular price $39.99
Latin for Star of the Sea, this devotion to Our Holy Mother under this title, arose in the 5th century actually due to a transcription error. Originally meaning “drop in the ocean” (Stilla Maris) it somehow became Stella Maris which means “star of sea”. This devotion was popular among sea-farers, but also serves as a popular devotion and title of Our Lady for people asking Our Lady’s intercession to be the Guiding Star to her Beloved Son amid the storms and trials of this life. As St. Bernard once beautifully wrote “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.”
Made by Catholic Armory using American made paracord and metal beads paired with gorgeous Italian made crucifix and medals, this rosary is simple yet elegant; versatile and pocketable yet sturdy and masculine, making it an excellent gift for both men and women.
