So, am I the only scapular wearer who removes the scapular during medical exam or medical procedure and during sex? Everyone else wears theirs during these times? Are the ladies honestly going to look me in the post, so to speak, and write that they wear their scapular when they’re having a mammogram?
And during sex? Do both men and women scapular wearers can truly say they wear their scapular when having sex?
Perhaps I’m just not as devout as others in my wearing of my precious scapular. I can be lazy by not replacing it during the time it’s in the washing machine, and I do admit that I should have asked the X-ray techinician beforehand if I could keep it on during a chest X-ray and mammogram. That really leaves only sex and surgery (and surgery is where I know you will not be allowed to keep your scapular on, not matter how kindly the medical personel are.)
But surely I’m not the only wearer who’s had these issues arise. I really have to marvel at those folks who say they only take theirs off during showering/bathing. Are these simply celebate and extremely young and healthy Catholics wearing somewhat sweaty/dirty scapulars?
