Ten years after the manifestation of the Miraculous Medal to Sister Catherine Laboure in 1830, the Blessed Mother entrusted the Green Scapular of the Immaculate Heart to Sister Justine Bisqueyburu, likewise a Daughter of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul.
The manner of using the Scapular was indicated by the Blessed Virgin. Since it is not the badge of a confraternity but simply a double image attached to a single piece of cloth, investiture is not required. It suffices that it be blessed by a priest and worn by the person for whom it is intended, or it may be placed in the clothing, on the bed, or simply in the room of that person.
The only prayer is the inscription surrounding the heart on the reverse of the Scapular: “Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.” Although wonderful graces are obtained, they are proportionate to the confidence with which the Green Scapular is given.
The Green Scapular was twice approved by Blessed Pope Pius IX, in 1863 and again in 1870, when he said: “Write to the good Sisters that I authorize them to make and distribute it.”
