The G R E E N Scapular
Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul (Paulists)A.D. 1840

In 1840, Mary appeared to Sister Justine Bisqueyburu (a Seminary Sister of the Daughters of Charity) in Paris, France and commended the Green Scapular to her. It's known as "the Scapular of Conversion," and its promises are the strengthening of faith, protection against Satan, a happy death for Catholics, and, most of all, for conversion for those outside the Church.
It's to be worn or carried by the faithful, or given to an unbeliever for their conversion. The following prayer is to be said daily by the wearer:

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death

Latin version:Cor immaculatum Mariae, ora pro nobis nunc et in hora mortis nostrae

If the scapular is given to an unbeliever for their conversion, the person giving the scapular prays the prayer for them if the unbeliever does not want to pray the prayer himself. If the unbeliever does not want the scapular, it may be hidden in their vicinity and the prayers said for him. Enrollment in a Confraternity is not necessary for this scapular, but the scapular should be blessed by a priest before use.
IT'S TIME TO GO GREEN!
After all, Our Blessed Mother did say, that the Rosary & SCAPULAR would SAVE THE WORLD!

Nice post! Do you know where to get brown scapulars with the writing in Latin?

The green scapular is amazing. A friend gave me one when I became interested in the Catholic Church. I didn't even know what it was but I wore it, prayed the prayer, and ended up converting. I'm so thankful for that friend.

Kimberlee, I'll try googling Scapular in latin and get back to you. Perhaps an order like the FSSP might know of a source.

And to HCF, praise God for your conversion! That's my prayer for those I've been praying for, God's time....I know....
