THE BROWN SCAPULAR
The Brown Scapular | Garment of Grace
The Thirteenth Century was a turbulent time and the Church was threatened by enemies on all
sides. It was then that the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to St. Simon Stock, Superior General
of the Carmelite Order, on July 16, 1251, and in her hand she held the "Garment of Grace",
which we know as the Brown Scapular, and She gave this promise:
"Take this Scapular, it shall be a Sign of Salvation, a Protection in Danger and a Pledge of
Peace. Whosoever dies wearing this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire." - Promise of Our
Lady made July 16, 1251 to Saint Simon Stock
"Let all of you have a common language and a common armor: The language, the sentences
of the Gospel - the common armor, the Brown Scapular of the Virgin of Carmel which you
ought to wear and which enjoys the singular privilege and protection after death."
The Brown Scapular | A Sacramental
"One of the most remarkable effects of sacramentals is the virtue to drive away evil spirits
whose mysterious and baleful operations affect sometimes the physical activity of man. To
combat this occult power the Church has recourse to exorcism, and sacramentals" (The
Catholic Encyclopedia., 1913, VXIII, p. 293).
The Brown Scapular | A True Story
You will understand why the Devil works against those who promote the brown scapular when
you hear the true story of Venerable Francis Yepes. One day his Scapular fell off. As he
replaced it, the Devil howled, “Take off that habit which snatches so many souls from us! All
those clothed in it die piously and escape us!” Then and there Francis made the Devil admit
that there are three things which the demons are most afraid of: the Holy Name of Jesus; the
Holy Name of Mary and the Holy Scapular of Carmel.
“Modern Heretics make a mockery of wearing the Scapular. They decry it as so much
trifling nonsense.” - St. Alphonsus Ligouri
Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother
"When Mary became the Mother of Jesus, true God and true Man, She also became our
Mother. In His great mercy, Jesus wished to call us His brothers and sisters, and by this name
He constituted us adopted children of Mary." - St. John Bosco
