Catholic Word of the Day: SCAPULAR MEDAL, 09-21-10 ^ | 09-21-10 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 09/21/2010 8:47:50 AM PDT by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


A blessed medal, worn or carried on the person, instead of one or more of the small scapulars. It was authorized as a substitute by St. Pius X in 1910. It bears on one side a representation of the Sacred Heart, and on the other an image of the Blessed Virgin. It replaces any (or all) of the small scapulars in which a person has been invested. Investing in each case must be done with the scapular and not the medal. The medal is to be blessed by a priest who has the faculties for each scapular investiture.

KEYWORDS: catholic; catholiclist; sacredheart; sacredthings
Some people who are allergic to the wool of the scapular might wear the medal instead.

this is good news. I had a brown scapular that lasted about a week before it disintegrated (or was assumed).
