The Scapular

The Scapular of St Michael the Archangel

What is the Scapular of St Michael the Archangel?

Scapular of St. Michael the Archangel is an external sign of entrustment to Saint Michael the Archangel and belonging to the Michaelite Family. By wearing it one wants to renew the honour of St. Michael the Archangel. Those who have received the scapular participate in the spiritual merits of the Congregation of St. Michael the Archangel.

What is the purpose of the Scapular?

The scapular is a sign of the designation of St Archangel Michael for a special defender in the fight against temptation and sin. 

The scapular is a uniform of the angelic army. Just like you recognize a soldier, policeman or priest, by the outfit, so you can recognize the member of the Confraternity of the Scapular by this sign. 

The scapular is an outfit, and purpose of the outfit is body protection. The scapular plays the same role in spiritual life: it guards against everything that could be an obstacle to salvation, i.e. from sin, satan and hell. 

Wearing the scapular is a source of graces that make it easier for us to make sacrifices required in fight against sin and to follow Christ.

What are the requirements?

There are three conditions for accepting the scapular: 

  • receive the scapular at the hands of an authorized priest or deacon
  • wear it constantly; 
  • recite the simple exorcism of Pope Leo XIII daily.

Upon receiving the scapular, you become member of the Confraternity of the Scapular: you belong to a family affiliated with the Michaelite Fathers, sharing in the merits of St Michael the Archangel Congregation in life and in death.


Where does prayer come from? Whether prayer is expressed in words or gestures, it is the whole man who prays. But in naming the source of prayer, Scripture speaks sometimes of the soul or the spirit, but most often of the heart (more than a thousand times). According to Scripture, it is the heart that prays. If our heart is far from God, the words of prayer are in vain.
