Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel

There is a Baptist woman at work who keeps staring at and asking about my scapular. She's even asked another Catholic about it. Just seeing the brown cord really seems to agitate her. I thought she was just being a jerk but maybe that is Our Lady moving on this woman's heart.

hahahah. I just tell them they are my Catholic dog tags. That either leads to a nice reasonable discussion or stoney silence and a lack of eye contact!

When I had knee surgery in March, I had to clear wearing my brown scapular during the procedure. Clear with both the anesthesiologist and surgeon. I made sure the side with "who so ever dies wearing..." side was up plus my explanation got me the okay to wear during my surgery. No problems!

I love it! Sacramentals aren't just for those of us wearing them. :)

I think you are on to something. Do you have extra ones to pass along to her? I have plenty if you need any!!! :)
