Sr. Lucy on the Importance of Wearing the Brown Scapular

Fr. Howard Rafferty, O.Carm., on August 15, 1950 to Sr. Lucy: "Do you mean to say that the wearing of the Brown Scapular is not just something Our Lady would like us to do, but that it is essential to the Message? (of Fatima)


Sister Lucy answered: "Exactly! One could not follow the Message of Fatima unless he fulfilled the five conditions, one of which is the wearing of the Brown Scapular all the time —day and night."


"Among devotions to Our Lady, the most privileged and most widespread are the Rosary and the Brown Scapular. This latter devotion, as the celebrated canonist and theologian, Rev. A. J. Vermeersch, S.J., puts it: 'Derives all its benevolence from the Blessed Virgin and is the homage of respectful affection, of filial confidence, and of continual supplication.'


On July 16, 1251, Our Lady appeared to the Carmelite Prior-General, St. Simon Stock, holding in her hand the Brown Scapular. 'Receive. my beloved son,' Our Lady said, 'this Habit; whosoever dies clothed in this shall not suffer eternal fire!'" ... Learn about the requirements and rewards of persevering in the Scapular Devotion by reading: "Brown Scapular Instructions" (The Scaplur Devotion) Imprimatur, January, 20th,1945.


"One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, I will save the world."

(The Blessed Virgin Mary to St. Dominic)


Blessed be St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles!

Would like to know what are the requirements about a worn out Brown Scapular? was vested by a True Catholic priest of Our Holy Father Pope Gregory XVIII... JMJ


No problem at all if your scapular has much use. We are guessing you probably were vested at a meeting of the underground Church last May on the East coast ... wise.

Today, July 16th, is the Solemn Commemoration of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel. To learn the exact teaching on the Brown Scapular, see this link:

Hi: How can we be vested in Brown Scapular in this current age? Its hard to find a priest with canonical mission from GregoryXVIII. What is it that we could do?

Papal Restoration Staff | Reply 24.09.2013 11.20

Hi. You were not vested, as this schismatic priest (whether he was in good faith or not) did not possess the authority to do this. Yes, you need to meet with a priest with canonical mission from Gregory XVIII.

i was vested in the scapular, by a valid Priest, who had become Novus ordo. and i think this should be done again by a Priest loyal to the Church.

I am concerned. I am a convert to catholism, i became a catholic when i was 19, in 1977. I wanted to be catholic since i was a child, am i a valid catholic?

Hi. If you haven't, you must abjure the novus ordo sect (& its sspx) and/or also the papal mandate law breaking sedevacantist antipapal sect. They will attempt to seduce you (to Hell) with their sophistic fallacies. Don't argue ... avoid them. (cont.)
