Cloth Scapular (set of 5)
The scapular of St. Michael the Archangel is an outward sign of entrustment to St. Michael and of belonging to the Michaelite family. It is worn in order to propagate the veneration of St. Michael the Archangel. People who have accepted the scapular are called to serve Christ and His Church in the spirit of the Congregation of St. Michael the Archangel, as seen in its mottoes of, “Who is like God?” and “Temperance and Work”. The section worn on a person’s back signifies an attitude of acceptance of Gods Will in bearing the crosses and difficulties of life. The front section of the scapular, worn on the chest, reminds us that our hearts should love God and our neighbour and that we should attempt to free ourselves from earthly attachments, and, through the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel, strive to attain eternal goods.
It is made of cloth. Two shields (4cm x 4cm) joined by two 45cm long tapes.
