Our Lady Star of the Sea - Stella Maris - Chaplet
Our Lady Star of the Sea (Stella Maris) is one of the names of the Virgin Mary, and in this role she is the patroness of those who sail the seas. According to Saint Bonaventure, Our Lady aids not only sailors, but also those who sail the stormy seas of life.
This chaplet (small rosary) is made with Tahitian blue Swarovski® pearls and gold shell beads, recalling the beauty of the seas. At the center is a heart-shaped medal of Our Lady, and the chaplet begins and ends with a gold-plated pewter medal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. A tiny crucifix hangs beside the medal.
This medal is also known as the Scapular medal, and is the traditional medal for the Stella Maris chaplet. A card with the prayers is included with the chaplet.
I have a rosary that matches this chaplet here: Stella Maris rosary, and also a bracelet which you can see here: Blue pearl rosary bracelet.
Beads: 8mm Swarovski® crystal pearls, 12mm shell beads
A lovely chaplet for anyone with a devotion to Our Lady, or who associated with the sea. It comes attractively wrapped along with the prayer card.
