Wearing Scapular and live according to the rules attached to it sets you free from Purgatory very quickly without much suffering.

In Italy, a woman of noble birth, heard a sermon on the glory of the Brown Scapular of Our Lady, preached by a pious priest in a church. The priest was declaring that if anyone who receives the Brown Scapular of the Blessed Mother and live according to the instructions attached to it dies and goes to Purgatory, he can be confident that Our Lady Herself will deliver him from Purgatory on the first Saturday after his death and receive him into heaven. Hearing this advice, she entered into the Society of the Brown Scapular, received it on her person and lived as directed by the Society.

And she also was praying to the Heavenly Queen that her death might fall on a Saturday. And her prayer was answered. Yes, she was affected by a mortal disease and was suffering much. Many doctors, after diagnosing her, declared that she would not survive until Wednesday.

But the woman was so convinced and telling that she would die only after three days, that is, on Saturday. What she said was proved right. She was alive for the next three days and died on Saturday.

When she died, her daughter went into her room and prayed for her mother’s soul and a good man met her and said, “Dear sister, do not weep for your mother. As she received the Brown Scapular of Our Lady and lived according to the norms of the Society of the Brown Scapular, she had not to stay for even a full day in Purgatory. After spending just a little time there, she went to heaven and she is now enjoying the Beatific Vision there. Our Lord deigned to reveal this to me when I was in meditation.”

The Blessed Mother has granted great privileges to the members of the Society of the Brown Scapular.

1.  Those who wear and follow the Brown Scapular continuously, will not go to hell after death. Being clothed with the Brown Scapular and wearing it piously throughout one’s life is one of the best ways to receive the greatest favor of dying with the best preparation ever.

2.  Those who live and die wearing the Brown Scapular, will be redeemed from Purgatory on the first Saturday after their death.

In order to receive these two benefits, we must follow three conditions:

1. We must always wear the Scapular piously.

2. We must be chaste according to our age and state of life.

3. We must follow faithfully not only the good deeds such as fasting and abstinence decreed by the Church, but we must also keep abstinence every Wednesday. However, if the Nativity of our Lord falls on a Wednesday, we must not keep abstinence.

If you have any hardship or obstruction in following these three conditions, you may consult a priest who has been authorized to give new conditions. He will allow you to observe different virtuous acts instead.
