Scapulars - part I

Q – Should our Brown scapulars be plain or is it ok if they are decorated?

A – see http://www.icspublications.org/bookstore/others/b_others13.html

and http://carmelitanacollection.com/catechesis.html

We generally try to keep it simple and plain. The size matters too, so we do not have a scapular the size of the friars. The maximum size is 9” x 7”. You do not need to get rid of any scapular you already have, especially the one in which you were clothed. Eventually you will need to replace it when it gets worn, and when you do, get one that is plain and simple.
