Oldest Existing and MIRACULOUS Scapulars

scapulars incorruptTwo great founders of Religious Orders, Saint Alphonsus Liguori, founder of the Redemptorists, and Saint John Bosco, founder of the Salesians, had a very special devotion to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Both wore her Brown Scapular.

When they died, each was buried in his priestly vestments and scapular. Several years later, their graves were opened: the bodies and sacred vestments in which they were buried were reduced to dust, but the Brown Scapular that each was wearing was perfectly intact.

The Scapular of Saint Alphonsus is on display in his monastery in Rome; that of Saint John Bosco is visible in his museum in Turin.

Are you wearing yours?

Keep praying. Keep singing.
