Hello all! I became Catholic last year, and have some questions regarding Saints medals, head coverings and scapulars.
I mainly wear a Blessed Mother Mary medal on a chain. I do have other Saints medals I would like to wear, but I was wondering if it was disrespectful to lump the medals together to wear them, particularly with Mary?
I love the mantilla (head covering) that women wear to Mass. From what I understand, it’s a sign of being a Bride of Christ. Is that right? Well, I would like to wear one, but I’m wondering if it’s okay to wear one since I’m married, and also, if I have to wear a dress or skirt with it. I wear nice pants and shirts to Mass. I’m very overweight, so don’t really have an appropriate dress I can wear. Most of the women I see wearing mantillas are wearing dresses or skirts.
Regarding scapulars, I read that in order to wear a scapular, you have to enroll in the Brown Scapular order (I believe that’s what it’s called) if you want to wear a brown scapular. Is that true?
