GREEN SCAPULAR STORY
I knew someone who was dating a girl he really loved. But, she was not at all interested in his faith. She thought religion was a sham. He didn’t know what to do, especially if he decided to marry her. He very much wanted a devout Catholic family. And, there seemed to be nothing he could say to open her heart to God.
I went over to a very special case I have and opened it up. Part of the case’s contents was a few Green Scapulars I had touched to over 160 first class relics of saints. I gave him one and explained he should hide it in a place she spends a lot of time in … chair, bed, car, etc.
He decided to tape it under her car.
It was almost immediately that he noticed a change in her. She became more inquisitive about his faith and more open to the possibility of this faith for her.
Then, one day, she found the scapular taped under her car. She figured it was him and, when she asked, he admitted placing it there, and explained it’s significance.
Instead of getting mad at him, she saw it as a thoughtful gesture.
She started carrying the scapular in her pocket at all times. And, most important, she started going to church with him.
