brown scapular

My pastor said I might be able to explore Franciscan spirituality with his asst pastor. Now is the brown scapular only for carmelites? Unfortunately there are none in our diocese. What is Franciscan spirituality about and like? Maybe that’s what I need.

You do not need to be a Carmelite to wear the brown scapular. If you want to get an idea of Franciscan spirituality then read any of Jreducation’s posts on CAF or contact him.

Check out the Social Group Franciscan Spirituality.
