The Scapular of Saint Joseph

Violet and Yellow Scapular

 

The Scapular of Saint Joseph is a Roman Catholic devotional scapular that traces its roots to the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin in St. Claude in France and was initially in white. It was later approved for the Diocese of Verona by the Congregation of Rites in 1880. In 1898, Pope Leo XIII granted the Capuchins the right of blessing and investing this scapular.

Due to the multiple sources for the scapular, the colors may be in combination, having white, gold and purple. The front of the scapular depicts St Joseph carrying the infant Jesus, and a lily in the other hand. The back panel features the Papal Arms, a dove (to symbolize the Holy Ghost) and a Cross.

Various indulgences have been granted for all the faithful who wear it by a Rescript of the Congregation of Indulgences, 8 June 1893 ("Acta S. Sedis", XXXIV, 317).
