Devotional scapulars are objects of popular piety, primarily worn by Roman Catholics, as well as some Anglicans and Lutherans, designed to show the wearer's pledge to a confraternity, a saint, or a way of life, as well as reminding the wearer of that promise
The significance of the scapular
The scapulars (a word meaning âshouldersâ in Latin) are an exterior sign of devotion to Mary and faithfulness to Christ.
The original scapular was large piece of brown cloth worn over the shoulders of monks. With the passing of time, the faithful gave other symbolic meanings to the scapular.
The scapular is not a lucky charm; it is not a rabbitâs foot, horseshoe or magic lamp. Rather it becomes a sign of our salvation if we draw close to the Mother of God, open our hearts to the special heavenly graces that she offers and give ourselves to her protection.
How to Use the Scapular
Rules for Wearing a Scapular
A scapular must consist of two wool squares connected by two strings (of any material). If you would like, you can wear more than one scapular at a time, so long as each scapular is complete.
Once you have your scapular it is important to have it blessed by a priest. Once you have your scapular blessed, it must be worn at all times in order to share in the indulgences and privileges of the particular scapular.
Should your scapular wear out, you may replace it with a new scapular.
By the wearing of the scapular, we express our commitment to be disciples of Christ, and following the example of Mary, we learn:
To be open to Godâs will
To listen to the word of God, and put it into practice
To pray at all times, as a way of discovering the presence of God in all that is happening around us
To share in the paschal mystery of Christ by means of voluntary penance
Hi, Iâm Ana Caputo. Iâm a Miami based handmade designer, originally from Venezuela with Italian parents. In my handmade jewelry, I combine the colors of the Caribbean and the faith inherited from my Italian family, with the knowledge of stones I learned from the Venezuelan rainforest.
After exploring feelings, materials, and understanding stones' properties and energies, I'd finally gotten good at finding potent images and pieces for protection.
I have designed over 500 handmade pieces with different properties, listening to the feedback and the energy received from the people who wear them. Which is how I know that the right combination of colors, symbols, and images is the foundation of any powerful protection jewelry.
