Gracias Madre

I have a little gift for you! It's been blessed by a priest. I'm giving out these green scapulars with my veils while they last, or while I can. I ordered one hundred here, but they're going fast. I hope to order more soon. They are truly a gift, and you don't have to buy anything. If you send me a self addressed stamped envelope, I'll send you a few. You can find my address here.

With this Green Scapular, the Blessed Mother helps the lost sheep get to heaven. In this devotion, you share these little green felt patches with those who lack the gift of the Catholic faith. Ask the lost sheep to keep it with them in their purse or their wallet or something. And if they won't take it, you can hide it somewhere. Put it in their room or their car. Then you pray this little prayer for the person each day, "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen." Ask the lost sheep to pray this prayer too, if they're willing. 

Mary gave the scapular to a little French nun named St. Justine Bisqueyburu. She appeared to Sr. Justine without the veil, I like to think that she appears to souls through the Green Scapular rather like a mother attending to a sick child in need, late at night. She gave St. Justine the scapular for the conversion of those lost little ones. 

This is a powerful sacramental. Carry it with you, and give another out to those in need of God's grace. Then you pray the little prayer for the person each day.

I gave it to my brother who was sick and dying in the hospital. At first he didn't want to see the priest because he's been away from the Church for so long, for about 40 years. But I gave him the scapular and said, "Take this, it's for your spiritual protection." And he took it! And in another day's time, he was willing to have the priest come and give him the last rites. That night we went to a restaurant, me, my husband and a friend. We found this restaurant clear out of the blue, because the one we were planning to go to was closed on Mondays. But the name of the restaurant turned out to be "Gracias Madre!" You can see the pictures from the restaurant down below all the way at the bottom of this post. It's in San Francisco. 

So I've created these chapel veils for Our Mother of the Green Scapular, because she interceded for my brother, like a mother who goes to a sick child, late at night. I received a beautiful favor from the Blessed Mother for the conversion of a family member.
