The scapular medal is a beloved religious item in the Catholic Church and is often worn as a symbol of devotion and faith. It is a simplified version of the scapular, which is a garment worn over the shoulders as a sign of religious devotion by monks and nuns. The scapular medal is typically worn around the neck like a pendant, making it a convenient and accessible alternative to the traditional scapular.
According to legend, the Blessed Mother appeared to St. Simon Stock in 1251 and presented him with the scapular as a badge of her confraternity. She promised that whoever wears the scapular will receive special graces and will not suffer everlasting fire if they die wearing it. The scapular became a powerful symbol of Mary's protection and grace and is worn by many as a reminder of her intercession and love.
In 1910, Pope St. Pius X introduced the Scapular Medal.
