Scapular of the
The Black Scapular
The Black Scapular
of the Passion is a Roman Catholic devotional scapular associated with the
of the Passionists holds that before St. Paul of the Cross founded the
Congregation of the Passionists he had a Marian apparition during which he
received the black habit of the order with the badge on chest. Thereafter, the
Passionist Fathers gave the faithful who wished to associate themselves more
closely with their order a black scapular in honor of the Passion of Christ.
This small scapular has a replica of the badge of the Passion, namely a heart
with three nails above a cross, on which is written "Jesu XPI Passio" and below
"sit semper in cordibus nostris". The other portion of the scapular hanging at
the back, may consist simply of a small segment of black cloth, but at times has
an image of the Crucifixion of Christ.
indulgences for the scapular were extended to all the faithful who wear it by
Pope Pius IX in 1861. Various other indulgences for the faithful who wear
this scapular, were then approved by the Congregation of Indulgences in 1877.
