About this item

The Brown Scapular holds a special place in the devotional life of the faithful. It is neither jewelry, a sentimental religious article, nor a vain token of superstition. Rather, it is a silent prayer, a gift from our Heavenly Mother that draws us to the Sacred Heart of her Divine Son.

A simple pairing of two pieces of cloth with ribbon, wearing the scapular is a declaration that you have put on Christ and are seeking to follow His way in imitation of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Although there is no formal preparation for investiture in the Brown Scapular, Fr. Jeffrey Kirby has collected in these pages the Church’s best writings on the subject to prepare you for receiving the scapular and incorporating it into your daily faith practice.

Catalyst for a real spiritual transformation
A Journey to Mount Carmel not only gives an easy-to-follow yet thorough preparation for investiture in the Brown Scapular, but it's also a crash course in true Christian discipleship. It expounds on the baptismal promises with a catechesis of what each looks like in daily life. My favorite part is the practical aspect: each chapter finishes with tailor-made spiritual exercises, a How-to encounter Our Lord and grow in our relationship with Him and His Church. Deep and simple, this manual is a powerful pedagogy to living in the glorious freedom of the children of God.
