History of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the Brown Scapular

Our Lady of Mount Carmel gave the scapular to St. Simon Stock who was the Prior General of the order at the time of the revelation on July 16th, 1251. The Order of Carmel was undergoing great difficulties, and he prayed fervently to Our Lady for help:

Flower of Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven, Mother of the Son of God. Amiable Mother, ever Virgin, give to thy children of Carmel the privilege of thy protection, Star of the Sea.”

Upon hearing this prayer, Our Lady appeared to St. Simon, holding the brown scapular in her hands and saying,

This will be the sign of the privilege that I have obtained for thee and for the children of Carmel; whoever dies clothed with this habit will be preserved from the eternal flames.

Our Lady told St. Simon that he only had to send a deputation to the Holy Father (Pope Innocent IV), and that he would not fail to assist the order.

All the baptized may receive the scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Through enrollment in the scapular, one acknowledges that he is called by God to be united in the spiritual family of Carmel, consecrated in love to the Virgin Mary. The Scapular of Mount Carmel is a form of the religious habit of the Carmelite Order, and it is a sign of a maternal relationship with the Mother of God. Those who are clothed with the scapular and entrust themselves to the Virgin Mary entrust themselves to her protection, have recourse to her maternal intercession, and are mindful of the primacy of the spiritual life. The scapular garment is a reminder that through baptism we have been “clothed in Christ, with the assistance of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who helps her children conform their lives to the Word Incarnate, that we may arrive in our heavenly homeland wearing our nuptial garb.”
