    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.

    “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.

    all this information I found on

    To all group members.........

    I Said a Prayer For You Today

    I said a prayer for you today, And know God must have heard
    I felt the answer in my heart, Although He spoke no word
    I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind
    I asked Him to send treasures of a far more lasting kind

    I asked that He'd be near you, at the start of each new day
    To grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way
    I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small--
    But it was for His loving care, I prayed the most of all.

    The author is unknown... and I have prayed for you this day!

    No man can live as an island, journeying thru life alone
    Since we are most loved by a mother, Jesus gave us His own.....

    Daily, daily sing to Mary,
    Sing, my soul, her praises due.
    All her feasts, her actions worship
    With the heart's devotion true.
    Lost in wond'ring contemplation,
    Be her Majesty confess'd.
    Call her Mother, call her Virgin,
    Happy Mother, Virgin blest.

    She is mighty to deliver.
    Call her, trust her lovingly.
    When the tempest rages round thee,
    She will calm the troubled sea.
    Gifts of heaven she has given,
    Noble Lady, to our race.
    She, the Queen, who decks her subjects
    With the light of God's own grace.

    Sing, my tongue, the Virgin's trophies
    Who for us her Maker bore.
    For the curse of old inflicted,
    Peace and blessing to restore.
    Sing in songs of peace unending,
    Sing the world's majestic Queen.
    Weary not nor faint in telling.
    All the gifts she gives to men.

    Mary, Queen of Mercy, pray for us.

    "Mary willingly gives milk and wool to all:

    the milk of mercy to animate our confidence and the wool of her protection against the thunderbolts of divine justice.

    Please read and then can I ask you to offer a Dolorous Rosary / Dominican Rosary or an hour of adoration for this purpose? Which ever is possible kindly post it here, so that others take courage and follow suit.

    I do believe that Jesus and Mary will be pleased at our efforts as individuals and as "one-body-inChrist".

    God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can and wisdom to know the difference.
