Welcome to the home page for Star of the Sea Resources from Paul Thigpen. This site is dedicated to Our Lady Stella Maris, “Star of the Sea”— the guiding Star who leads us safely home to her Son, Jesus. My goal is to help Catholics deepen their faith in Our Lord, and to help others learn more about the Catholic faith.

Take a look around the site, kick back and relax, and read whatever strikes your fancy:


·   Find out a little more about me and my work at Meet Paul.
·   Take a look at some of the Books (and More Books) I’ve written, with links for purchasing the ones that are still in print. You’ll find here as well links to my pamphlets, children’s books, chapters in books, and articles in scholarly journals and reference works.
·   Check out Other Writings, where you can read the full text of some articles, essays, prayers, and more that I’ve written on a number of topics, all related to Christian faith and life.
·  Friends of the Georgia Martyrs is an association whose mission is to promote the canonization of the five 16th-century Spanish Franciscan missionaries who preached to the native Americans in what is now coastal Georgia and gave their lives there for the Catholic faith and the sanctity of marriage.
·   Visit the wonderful pages and weblogs at Links.

Finally, a big thank you to my dear friends at Schmalen Design, for designing this website. Check out their handiwork at http://www.schmalen.com/.
I pray you’ll find something here that will bring you closer to the fiery, loving heart of the Most Blessed Trinity — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — and that your own heart will be set ablaze.

As sailors are guided by a star to the port, so Christians are guided to heaven by Mary.
St. Thomas Aquinas

Our Lady Stella Maris, Star of the Sea, pray for us!
