The Feast day of the Brown Scapular is the Feast of
Our Lady of Mount Carmel, July 16th.
According to tradition, over 700 years ago Our Blessed Mother appeared to Saint Simon Stock, holding out to him a brown woolen scapular.
She said, "Receive, my beloved son, the Scapular of thy Order, as a distinctive sign of my Confraternity. Whoever dies invested with this Scapular shall be preserved from the eternal flames.
It is a sign of salvation, a sure safeguard in danger,
a pledge of peace and of my special protection until the end of the ages"
