Brown Scapular Enrollment: Spiritual Protection, Silent Devotion
Learn about the Brown Scapular. Through this sacramental endowed with the prayers of the Church, evil spirits are powerless when the wearer of a scapular faces temptation, calling upon the Holy Virgin. Pious legend holds that on July 16, 1251, the Blessed Mother appeared to St. Simon Stock, gave him the brown scapular and said “in which he that dieth shall not suffer eternal fire; behold the sign of salvation, a safeguard in danger, the covenant of peace and everlasting alliance.” Purchase a brown scapular ahead of time to be blessed and so that you can be enrolled. No worries if you forget as we have a few extras on hand, though supplies are limited.
These scapulars are guaranteed to last at least seven years, though you can also find less expensive ones wherever Catholic goods are sold.
