Are you Worried about a friend or family member? Try the Green Scapular
There’s always someone in our lives who is in need of healing. The person might need a physical healing, or a spiritual one. Whatever the case is, we are rest assured that God desires their full restoration.
As it can be beneficial for the person to pray for healing or conversion themselves, God also accepts favorably the prayers of friends or family members.
According to (Matthew 9:1-8), When a group of people brought before Jesus a paralytic, Jesus looked upon the faith of his friends and cured the paralytic in addition to forgiving his sins.
One of the best ways to request from God such a healing or conversion is to use the Green Scapular, and it’s a sacramental of the Church that has been known to be an effective means of God’s miraculous intervention.
Almost 10 years after St. Catherine Laboure received visions of the Virgin Mary about the Miraculous Medal, a religious sister in her order also experienced a miraculous vision.
Sister Justine Bisqueyburu received a vision of the Blessed Mother in 1840, and she gave her the Green Scapular of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. And this was approved by Pope Pius IX in 1870 and ever since then, the Green Scapular has been a popular sacramental.
However, the Green Scapular is a simple green cloth that has the image of the Virgin Mary on it, with a prayer written on it that says, “Immaculate Heart of Mary, intercede for us now and at the hour of our death.” Though, there is no official enrollment in the scapular, but the cloth can be blessed by a priest.
It is also reported that Our Lady said to Sister Justine, “The greatest graces come from using the scapular but these graces come in direct angle to the degree of confidence in which the user have in me.”
As Jesus said to his disciples in (Luke 17:6) , “If your faith is as little a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this sycamine tree, ‘Be rooted up, and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you” (Luke 17:6).
It is an often practice for those who have the Green Scapular to place the scapular close to someone who is in need of healing, whether physical or spiritual. The person who placed the scapular should then pray with great faith for the friend or family member in need.
Countless miracles have been reported to the devout use of this scapular.
Ultimately, it should be noted that this Green Scapular should not be used as if it were a “lucky charm,” or in a superstitious way, but with a deep love of God and trust in his divine providence.
Because, with God, all things are possible.
For those whom fallen away from the church and faith,
Green scapular !
