HOW TO AVOID PURGATORY By Fr. Paul O’Sullivan O.P.

For those who have not read this little book and to refresh myself, I will be posting the entire book in daily doses.  (To read later find in the Purgatory Category).

Appendix

THE BROWN SCAPULAR

(The following official information was obtained from the National Scapular
center, Darien, Illinois, May 9, 1986.)

Two wonderful promises of Our Lady of Mount Carmel are available to those
who have been enrolled in the Brown Scapular.

The great promise of the Blessed Virgin Mary, given to St. Simon Stock on
July 16, 1251, is as follows: “Whoever dies wearing this scapular shall not
suffer eternal fire.”

Our Lady’s second Scapular Promise, known as the Sabbatine Privilege (the
word “Sabbatine” meaning “Saturday”), was given by the Blessed Virgin Mary
to Pope John XXII in the year 1322 and is as follows: “I, the Mother of
Grace, shall descend on the Saturday after their death and whomsoever I
shall find in Purgatory, I shall free.”

There are three conditions for obtaining this privilege: 1) the wearing of
the Brown Scapular; 2) the practice of chastity according to one’s state of
life; 3) the daily recitation of the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin
Mary.

Those who cannot read can abstain from meat on Wednesdays and Saturdays
instead of reciting the Little Office.   Also, any priest who has diocesan
faculties (this includes most priests) has the additional faculty to
commute (change) the third requirement into another pious work–for
example, the daily Rosary.

Because of the greatness of the Sabbatine privilege, the Carmelite Order
suggests that the third requirement not be commuted into anything less than
the daily recitation of seven Our Fathers, seven Hail Marys and seven
Glory Bes.
