In Eastern Christian iconography the Blessed Virgin Mary is depicted with three stars on Her mantle which symbolize Her Perpetual Virginity: one on Her forehead and one on each shoulder. Through the privilege of Her Virginity, the Father proclaims that the Son born of Her is God Himself. Mary is Ever-Virgin, and therefore she is also Mater Spei, Mother of Hope. Just as the star guided the Wise Men to Jesus, the star of Our Lady’s Virginity guides us with certainty on the path towards Christ.
