I have had a brown scapular for about two months. I never washed it, or wore it in the shower and so it turned pink. I do not know how, but yes, it turned pink.
Anyway, I just got back from the St. Jude religious shop here in Philly, and bought a Scapular. I do not know what it is called but it is much bigger then the brown scapular, and on one side it has a picture of Jesus and says, Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. And on other cloth it is a picture of the Blessed Virgin holding the infant Jesus and has words saying Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us. Now I am wondering, is this just another version of the Brown Scapular, and so I should say the morning offering prayer, that I say for it? This one did not come with any mini pamphlet talking about it. So, is it the same kind or not?
Another question, is it time to retire my old one, since it turned pink? I bought two of the new on and so I can keep it clean. But when I was trying to clean my old one, the pink stayed and the picture and words rubbed away. And if so, what do I do with it? Is it fine to cut it and take the Miraculous medal off?
