Chaplet/The scapular

  • On this feast day of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, one important aspect of the Carmelite order is the scapular, which is worn around the neck. Do you have one? Our Lady promised spiritual protection for all who faithfully devoted themselves to wearing this. However, as guest Fr. Chris Alar notes, it is not meant to be looked at as a “rabbit’s foot,” or something that is magical or superstitious. Learn more about this tradition and why it matters for your faith.
