Marian thought for July

The devotion to the Brown Scapular "has brought down a copious stream of spiritual and temporal graces upon the earth” (Pope Pius XII, August 6, 1950).

In 1246 St. Simon Stock was named Prior General of the Carmelite Order. St. Simon understood that, without the Virgin Mary’s intervention, the order was not going to last very long. He turned to Mary and placed the order under her protection, for they belong to Her. In his prayer he addressed Her as Flower of Carmel and Star of the Sea, begging Her to protect the community. In response to this fervent prayer, the Virgin Mary appeared to St. Simon Stock on July 16, 1251, and gave him the Scapular and the following promise: “This shall be a privilege for you and all Carmelites, that anyone dying in this habit shall not suffer eternal fire.”

"Only a few words from the Virgin Mary have come down to us in the Gospels. But these few words are like heavy grains of pure gold. When they melt in the ardor of loving meditation, they more than suffice to bathe our entire lives in a luminous golden glow."

Saint Josemaría Escrivá

If you're proud of being a son or daughter of the Blessed Virgin Mary, ask yourself: "How many times have I showed my devotion to the Blessed Virgin during this day?"

St. Pio of Pietrelcina

"When passing before an image of the Madonna one should say: I greet you, oh Mary. Greet Jesus for me."
