The Brown Scapular holds a special place in the devotional life of the faithful. It is neither jewelry, sentimental religious article, nor vain token of superstition. Rather, it is a silent prayer, a gift from our heavenly Mother that draws us to the sacred Heart of her Divine Son. A simple pairing of two pieces of cloth with ribbon, the scapular when work is a declaration that you have put on Christ and are seeking to follow His way in imitation of Mary and our Lady of Mount Carmel. Although there is no formal preparation for investiture in the Brown Scapular, Fr. Jeffrey Kirby has collected in these pages the church’s best writing on the subject to prepare you for receiving the scapular and incorporating it into your daily faith practice. Paper.
