For a while I considered a career in the merchant marine. I even attended the Maritime Academy in Vallejo, CA, preparing for a career as a deck officer. And while my life has taken many twists and turns since then, the sea has always had a certain hold on me.

The Virgin Mary is sometimes referred to as the Star of the Sea. As the stars reflect the light of the sun, Mary reflects the light of God, acting as a guide, drawing us to Him.  The image of Mary cradling a boat, acting as both guide and protector of those navigating the stormy seas of the world, has always been an image of hope and comfort, not only for sailors but for all those weathering the storms of life.
