The name of Marymeans star of the sea. She is indeed a star which enlightens, guides, and leads us to a harbor in the stormy sea of this world. She is this clear and brilliant starrising above this great and spacious sea, shining by her merits and enlightening by her example.
You have without a doubt a need for light in this life, where you are always as if upon a stormy sea, at the risk of your salvation. Have recourse to Mary. She will enlighten you and help you know God's will for you because she shares in the light of Jesus Christ her Son. She herself is a light shining in the darkness.
-- John Baptist de La Salle, Meditation 164 Meditation on the Holy Name of Mary, September 12
