 Our Description

This little book will help children to learn how we got the Scapular. It includes miracles of protection, replies to the most commonly asked questions about the Scapular - in a question and answer format. It is very convincing in getting people to wear their Scapulars at all times in order to obtain the promise: "Whosoever dies wearing this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire."


Garment of Grace

It was to St. Simon Stock that Our Blessed Mother gave the Scapular promise in 1251, saying, "Whosoever dies wearing this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire."

One of the great mysteries of our time is that the majority of Catholics either ignore, or have entirely forgotten this Heavenly promise of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Lady further says: "Wear the Scapular devoutly and perseveringly. It is My garment. To be clothed in it means you are continually thinking of Me, and I in turn, am always thinking of you and helping you to secure eternal life."

St. Claude de la Colombiere, the renowned Jesuit and spiritual director of St. Margaret Mary, says "Because all the forms of our love for the Blessed Virgin and all its various modes of expression cannot be equally pleasing to Her, and therefore do not assist us in the same degree to reach Heaven, I say, without a moment's hesitation, that the Brown Scapular is the most favored of all!" He adds, "No devotion has been confirmed by more numerous authentic miracles than the Brown Scapular."

Garment of Grace recalls several outstanding miracles attributed to the Brown Scapular and quotes the saints and popes recommending the scapular. It explains what a scapular is, how it is to be worn, the benefits received and more. It also gives a brief history of the scapular and St. Simon Stock.

Garment of Grace, with over 15 full color pictures, is perfect to promote devotion to Our Lady and the Brown Scapular.

Patron Of: Bordeaux, France

Also known as Simon Anglus Simon the Englishman Memorial 16 May Profile Little is known of his early life. Legend says that at age twelve he began to live as a hermit in a hollow oak tree; the name Stock is believed derived from the old English for tree trunk. Itinerant preacher. Pilgrim to the Holy Lands, but left when invading Muslims chased out Christians. Joined the Carmelite Order soon after its arrival in England. Lived and studied for several years in Rome and Mount Carmel. Elected sixth general of the Carmelites in 1247 around age 82. Helped the Order spread through England, southern and western Europe. Founded houses in Cambridge, England in 1248, Oxford in 1253, Paris in 1260, and Bologna in 1260. Revised the Rule of the Order to make them mendicant friars instead of hermits. Regardless of these successes, the Order was oppressed on all sides, including by the clergy and other orders. The friars took their woes to their patroness, the Virgin Mary. Tradition says that in answer, she appeared to Simon bringing him the brown scapular of the Carmelites. "This shall be the privilege for you and for all the Carmelites," she told him, "that anyone dying in this habit shall be saved." On 13 January 1252 the Order received a letter of protection from Pope Innocent IV, protecting them from harassment.
