Devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel

“Receive, my beloved son, this habit of thy order…whosoever dies clothed in this shall never suffer eternal fire .... It shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger, and a pledge of peace."

Devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel

The Brown Scapular may have been one of the very first gifts that may have been given to you by your elders.

Do you know the history behind this amazing devotion?

On 16 July 1251, Our Lady of Mount Carmel appeared to St Simon Stock and gave him the Brown Scapular saying:

“Receive, my beloved son, this habit of thy order…whosoever dies clothed in this shall never suffer eternal fire .... It shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger, and a pledge of peace."

Many prominent personalities in the Catholic Church including Saints and Popes have always encouraged the faithful to practice this devotion.

Wearing the scapular is associated with Sabbatine Privilege: Freedom from Purgatory to the bearer of the Scapular by Mother Mary herself.

Sabbatine Privilege is closely connected to Pope John XXII who encouraged the devotion to Brown Scapular and Our Lady of Mount Carmel.



According to the Church teaching there are three conditions necessary to receive the spiritual blessings of the Scapular

1. Enroll in and wear the Brown Scapular
2. Observe chastity according to your state in life
3. Pray the Rosary

The Scapular is not a magical charm or a trinket to play with.

It is a sign that has been approved by the Church for over seven centuries to help us to learn to:

Follow Jesus like Mother Mary did

1. Understand that God is always present in all our life situations
2. Pray at all times
3. Be open to God’s will and his plans

Have you enrolled yourself to the Brown Scapular?

Our Lady of Mount Carmel will bless you as she blessed the first hermits who settled on this mountain overlooking the plain of Galilee.
