Sr. Lucy on the Importance of Wearing the Brown Scapular

The Most Blessed Virgin Mary Shown Giving St. Simon Stock the Brown Scapular

 

In the year 1251, in the town of Aylesford in England, Our Lady appeared to St. Simon Stock, a Carmelite.
She handed him a brown woolen scapular and said, “This shall be a privilege for you and all Carmelites, that
anyone dying in this habit shall not suffer eternal fire.” In time, the Church extended this magnificent privilege
to all the laity who are willing to be invested in the Brown Scapular of the Carmelites and who perpetually wear it.

 

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 Scapular 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!

Hi Nicholas:
No, not currently. Marie-Julie Jahenny had a vision about These trying times, which addressed availabilty of the Sacraments. See: tinyurl.com/mjj-proph

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.

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?
