Blessed Virgin appearing to St. Simon Stock

Detail: Devotional scapular

"The devotional scapular typically consists of two small (usually rectangular) pieces of cloth, wood or laminated paper, a few inches in size which may bear religious images or text. These are joined by two bands of cloth and the wearer places one square on the chest, rests the bands one on each shoulder and lets the second square drop down the back." - Wikipedia: Scapular  (online Oct. 2012)
