A Brown Scapular Miracle

Why Wear The Brown Scapular?

Because our Lady keeps her promises. Take a minute to read this story and share with a friend. If you do not wear the scapular, please prayerfully consider it.

A Brown Scapular Miracle

Monsieur de Cuge, cornet of a company
of horse, was wounded at Tefin, in the
year 1636, by a cannon ball, which, passing
through his left side, had torn his heart to
pieces, so that naturally he could not live
a moment. Nevertheless, Almighty God, by
the intercession of the glorious Virgin, gave
him time to repent, for he was in mortal sin
(as he afterwards declared), and prolonged
his life for three or four hours, during which
time he made his confession, and with his
own hands wrote his last will and testament;
which being done, the surgeon came to search
his wounds, and found that the bullet had
driven the Scapular into his heart. On its
being drawn out, he presently expired, making
many acts of profound gratitude towards the
blessed Virgin, who prolonged his life in a
miraculous manner, and preserved him from
eternal death in hell.

Promises/Benefits to those who wear the Brown Scapular
1. Conversion of those who do not have the faith
2. Reconciliation to the Church for those who have lost/strayed from the faith
3. Assurance of a happy death
4. Strengthening of the faith for those already in the Church
5. Protection from Satan for those who wear or promote the scapular
