Read what I wrote again. The scapular is not a magic talisman. No one is going to bestruck down for not wearing a special 'shower scapular', switching out to a medal, or anything superstitious like that.
I recommend that the OP speak to his priest or ask on the Carmelite sub-forum here. But don't be think that the physical item -absent the true devotion- is going to protect you.

Please forgive a slight dis-railment of the thread :p
I was blessed to finally be invested with the Brown scapular this last Wednesday by Franciscan of the Immaculate friar. I just wanted to express my happiness and joy of this blessed event.
Even better news, the person that I was with was also inspired to be invested.
Can someone direct me to a good site that has information on being invested?
