    The scapular is just wonderful it has really changed me and brought this new side of me. I would recommend anyone to wear the scapular and notice the difference for themselves. Thanks for sharing this bit of history.

    HISTORY / PROMISE

    “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.” This is Mary’s
    promise made July 16, 1251 to Saint Simon Stock.

    One of the great mysteries of our time is that the majority of Catholics either ignores, or has
    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.”

    Old Testament History
    Mount Carmel is on the northwestern coast of Palestine. The Hebrew word for Carmel means
    'Beautiful Garden Land'. Truly that is what Our Lady is, the beautiful garden that brought forth
    Jesus Christ, Our Savior.

    The Origin of Carmel goes back to about 860 B.C. to the time of the prophet Elijah and his
    victory over the pagan prophets and their god, Baal. The account of this event is given in 1
    Kings 18:19-40. The Jewish people had taken to worshipping false gods, especially the god
    Baal. Their evil King Ahab had married the gentile, Jezebel, who worshipped Baal. The king
    built a temple to this pagan deity. When the prophets denounced him for this, he had them
    killed. Elijah stood firm and challenged the prophets of Baal to gather on Mount Carmel to
    determine which God, Baal or the Lord was the true God. Each built a stone altar with firewood
    and a sacrificial bull upon it. The "God" who would send fire from Heaven upon the altar would
    be accepted as the true God.

    The prophets of Baal prayed and danced and chanted all day to no avail. Elijah, though before
    beginning his prayer poured gallons of water over his sacrifice, making it humanly impossible
    to light the fire. Elijah called upon the Lord and immediately a bolt of lightning came down from
    heaven consuming the sacrifice and the stones of the altar.

    The pagan prophets were killed and Elijah went into hiding on Mount Carmel. Later a
    community of prophets joined him. They dwelt in caves, praying to God, living in peace.

    I have a question.
    I am hopefully going to get enrolled next Sunday after Mass. I know that every Priest is now able to enroll people, but can every Priest also allow you to say the Rosary instead of the Little Office? I heard that a Priest can do that and it would really be convenient for me. Thanks!
