One important sacramental is the brown scapular. According to Catholic tradition, Our Lady appeared to Saint Simon Stock and gave the scapular to him.

When Our Lady appeared to St. Simon Stock, she said, “Take this Scapular, it shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger and a pledge of peace. Whosoever dies wearing this Scapular shall not suffer eternal fire,” and, “Wear it 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.” This has become known as the “Scapular Promise.”

There was also an additional promise given by the Blessed Virgin Mary later to Pope John XXII:

“I, the Mother of Grace, shall descend on the Saturday after their death and whomsoever I shall find in purgatory I shall free so that I may lead them to the holy mountain of life everlasting.” This has become known as the “Sabbatine Privilege” of the brown scapular (named for the Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath).

All scapulars must be properly invested, which is a simple ceremony in which the wearer becomes enrolled in the Confraternity of the Scapular. This is basically a short “ceremony” said by a priest.

NUESTRA SEÑORA DEL MONTE CARMELO, ESTRELLA DEL MAR

Un importante sacramental es el escapulario marrón. Según la tradición católica, Nuestra Señora se apareció a San Simón Stock y le regaló el escapulario. Cuando Nuestra Señora se apareció a San Simón Stock, ella dijo, "Toma este Escapulario, será un signo de salvación, una protección en peligro y un compromiso de paz. Quien muera usando este Escapulario no sufrirá el fuego eterno ", y" Úsalo devota y perseverantemente ". Es mi prenda. Estar revestido con el escapulario significa que continuamente estás pensando en mí, y yo a su vez, siempre estoy pensando en ti y ayudándote a asegurar la vida eterna. "Esto se conoce como la" Promesa del Escapulario ".

Hubo también una promesa adicional dada por la Santísima Virgen María más tarde al Papa Juan XXII: "Yo, la Madre de la Gracia, descenderé el sábado después de su muerte y quienquiera que encuentre en el purgatorio, lo liberaré para que pueda conducirlos al santo monte de la vida eterna". Esto se conoce como el "privilegio del sabático". "Del escapulario café  (llamado así por el sábado, el sábado judío).

Todos los escapularios deben estar correctamente invertidos, que es una ceremonia sencilla en la que el usuario se inscribe en la Cofradía del Escapulario. Esto es básicamente una "ceremonia" corta que dice un sacerdote.
