Is the Brown Scapular only a piece of cloth? Some people of course say so. And they are almost right. Almost, for there is one important thing that they seemingly do not remember about:
Above-mentioned piece of cloth has been given and blessed by Mary, the Flower of Carmel herself. From that time on it is the Cloth of Grace. For everything can be changed due to Her ideal "FIAT".
Thus try hard to be as humble and good as She is, and - as a proud holder of the Brown Scapular (even if you are a sinner as well)- never doubt in Her own words, directed to St. Simon Stock:
"Receive, my beloved son, this habit of thy order: This shall be to thee and to all Carmelites a privilege, that whosoever dies clothed in this shall never suffer eternal fire".
