It simply means getting people to pray.
The idea is that we only make progress if we pray, using the sacraments which is the Church’s prayer, or using sacramentals, which have the church’s blessing,are reminders that lead to private prayer. It is always thru prayer, our dependency and need for God’s assistance, that we will endure.
Now a simple way to introduce prayer are the simple scapulars, medals, and the rosary. This of course then leads a person to the higher forms of prayer, the sacraments. It is a way to get a person to shake of the rust of lethergy and begin to live a spiritual life. It all starts with prayer and only gets better.
We might stand on our heads all day and scream out to someone to go back to church, all in vein. Give them a scapular, gets them to pray a little, and then thru the grace of little beginnings, this will eventually nudge them into going back to church.
For example the Miraculous Medal. The mother of Jesus spoke to sister Catherine Laboure 1830.
“Have a medal struck… All who wear it will receive GREAT graces; they should wear it around the neck. GRACES will ABOUND for persons who wear it with CONFIDENCE.”
Later Mary said, “… it must be given to the whole world and to every person.”
Mary made us, her children in christ, a promise of great graces for those who wear the medal and pray. Would the mother of God lie? She promised, and all we need do is to ask for GREAT and ABUNDANT graces.
Where does she get these graces from? Her Son, just as she got a favor at Cana from her Son, his first miracle. The medal is called miraculous for a reason. And the image is “Our Lady of Grace”.
“Great graces are often attached to what seems trifling.” St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
And so the saying, “One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, Our Lady will save the world.”
It is a gift to her children, to all of us, because she is our mother and cares deeply.
Just a few thoughts.
