Stella Maris - Our Patron
Our small apostolate needs your prayer more than anything else. Please take a moment now to ask our Lord to help us stay faithful and to do the works He has called us to. If you feel so called, we would love very much to be added to your daily prayer!
Also, please ask our patroness, The Blessed Virgin Mary under her title “Stella Maris” (Star of the Sea) to pray for us too.
Star of Sea and Ocean
Star of sea and ocean, Gateway to God’s haven,
Mother of our Maker, Hear our prayer, O Maiden.
Welcoming the Ave, Gabriel’s simple greeting,
You have borne a Savior Far beyond all dreaming.
Loose the bonds that hold us Bound in sin’s own blindness
That with eyes now opened God’s own light may guide us.
Show yourself our mother; He will hear your pleading
Whom your womb has sheltered
And whose hand brings healing.
Gentlest of all virgins, That our love be faithful
Keep us from all evil, Gentle, strong, and grateful.
Guard us through life’s dangers, Never turn and leave us
May our hope find harbor In the calm of Jesus.
Sing to God our Father Through the Son who saves us,
Joyful in the Spirit, Everlasting praises.
If I may offer this beautiful chant out of love for our dear mother as well.
