Our Blessed Mother appeared to Sister Justine Bisqueyburo, a Daughter of Charity, in the early 1840’s in Paris, France giving her instructions for the making of the Green Scapular. Our Lady called this scapular “The Badge of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” It was revealed to Sister Justine that God wanted to encourage a deeper appreciation of His Blessed Mother under the title of her Immaculate Heart.
In regards to the Green Scapular, Our Lady said, “This scapular is not like others (it is not the clothing-habit of a confraternity) but merely two holy pictures on a single piece of material. Therefore no special formula is required to bless it or enroll someone in its use. It suffices that it be blessed by a priest and worn by the one whom we desire to benefit by Our Lady’s intercession. If on the other hand, the person is unable or even unwilling to wear it or carry it, it may even be slipped, unknown to him, into his clothes, bed, room, or possessions etc.”
It is recommended that the wearer of the Green Scapular say the following prayer at least once a day, “Immaculate heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.” If the person in need of assistance does not say this prayer another person can say it instead. It is allowed to use the Green Scapular anytime, anywhere, and by anyone.
Many miracles have been attributed to the Green Scapular. In one case in particular, two people staying at a prominent medical center in Washington, D.C., were completely cured while they were on their death beds. Also, there are many cases where people have been converted or have been brought back to the faith through the intercession of the Green Scapular.
