The scapular must be worn by all;
it will be your badge of courage in a discordent world.

"It is my garment, to be clothed in it means your continually thinking of me,
and I in turn am always thinking of you, and helping you to secure eternal life."



THE SABBATINE PRIVELEGE :The blessed Virgin of Mt. Carmel has promised to save those who wear the scapular from the fires of Hell; She will also shorten their stay in Purgatory if they should pass from this world still owing some temporal debt of punishment.
This promise is found in a Bull of Pope John XXII. The Blessed Virgin appeared to him and speaking of those who wear the Brown Scapular said: "I, the Mother of grace, shall descend on the Saturday after their death and whomsoever I shall find in Purgatory, I shall free, so that I may lead them to the holy mountain of life everlasting."

The Blessed Virgin assigned certain conditions which must be fulfilled:
  • WEAR THE BROWN SCAPULAR CONTINUOUSLY

  • OBSERVE CHASTITY ACCORDING TO ONE'S STATE IN LIFE. (MARRIED/SINGLE)

  • RECITE DAILY THE "LITTLE OFFICE OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN."

  • OR, A) TO OBSERVE THE FASTS OF THE CHURCH TOGETHER WITH ABSTAINING FROM MEAT ON WEDNESDAY'S & SATURDAY'S.

  • OR, B) WITH PERMISSION OF A PRIEST TO SAY FIVE DECADES OF OUR LADY'S MOST HOLY ROSARY.

  • OR, C) WITH THE PERMISSION OF A PRIEST TO SUBSTITUTE SOME OTHER GOOD WORK.

NOTE: YOU CAN'T SUBSTITUTE FOR THE FIRST TWO CONDITIONS: WEARING THE SCAPULAR; AND, OBSERVING CHASTITY.

Pope Benedict XV, the celebrated World War I Pontiff granted 500 days indulgence for devoutly kissing your scapular.
INDULGENCE: The remission in whole or in part for the temporal punishment due to sins. (Remission of time spent in Purgatory.)
