39knightsMy father (he’s 80 now) told me as children they were enrolled in the 5-scapulars (red, green, brown, not sure the other colors). I was enrolled by a saintly diocesan priest (those are rare now) back my first year in University. Let’s just say that until about 10 yrs ago I was not in a good state of Grace. However today I am trying fervently to live the Catholic Sacramental life including the wearing of the brown scapular again. I attribute this wholly (in no part on my own) to that priest enrolling me in the scapular as a teen; and Our Blessed Mother holding true to that promise. I am trying now to convince my children to do the same and anyone I can encourage. It is a real shame that except for that priest in our diocese (that was in 1985); I have not heard or seen the devotion preached on, encouraged, nor mentioned since then.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favor to ask. God is everywhere—even in the news. That’s why we view every news story through the lens of faith. More people are reading Mystic Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Mystic Post’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure.Thank you
