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 that the wind and sea obey Him. Bright Star of the Sea, guide us!
- St. John Paul II (adapted from Ecclesia in Oceania)
