Our Lady of Mount Carmel Mini Lives Holy CardIn the midst of persecution of the Carmelite Order, Mary holding the baby Jesus, appeared to St Simon and handed him the brown scapular, a loose garment worn over the head, down the front and back, from the shoulders to the knees. She told him to receive the scapular as a sign of a privilege she had obtained for them and all who honored her. The problems that the Carmelites faced ceased and devotion to the scapular spread quickly. The front of this inspirational Our Lady of Mount Carmel Holy Card shows Mary in brown holding the baby Jesus and each of them holds the smaller scapulars we wear today.
