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.
