The Green Scapular was given to the world by the Blessed Virgin Mary through a series of apparitions to Sister Justine, a daughter of charity, in the early 1840’s in Paris, France. On the Feast of the Nativity of Mary, Sept. 8th, 1840, the Mother of Jesus Christ appeared holding in her right hand her Immaculate Heart, mounted by flames and holding in her other hand a scapular.
The scapular consisted of a simple piece of green cloth, rectangular in shape, hanging from a green string. On one side was an image of Mary dressed in a long white gown which reached to her bare feet.
Eternal Consecration Prayers
Oh most Merciful Father, today I beg Thee to accept my sincere act of love in consecrating my entire life to Thy Son’s most Sacred Heart. I do this not alone my dearest Father, but through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Green Scapular. With her heart so pierced with the seven sorrows, at the beginning of Thy Son’s life until His tortuous death, she cries daily for those who choose not to love Thy Son, Jesus. Even today with so many souls choosing to spend their eternity in Hell, she longs for our intercession to bring others to know and love our God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We ask then Almighty Father that Thou wouldst permit us to place all these souls in Mother’s hands, those whom have touched our life in some way. We wish to consecrate today our family members, friends, yes even our enemies; to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We know that Thou, our Divine Majesty, will refuse Thy Son nothing, and that Thy beloved Son can refuse His Mother nothing when it comes to the salvation of souls. I make this act of Eternal Consecration only once, my Merciful Father, and beg Thee to apply its merits to those whom have their names placed on a Green Scapular. We offer for those souls Thy Son’s most beloved Body and Blood in the Holy Eucharist, along with the Rosaries, prayers, joys, sacrifices and sufferings of each day, past and present until the end of our lives.
We know with great confidence that the Queen of the Green Scapular will not rest until she secures the gift of Final Perseverance to all those living souls clothed in her Green Scapular. She will beckon her Divine Son for, not only the spiritual conversion back to Thee, Eternal Father, but also physical cures of those whose mission on this earth requires Thy Son’s gift of a physical healing.
Most holy Lord, Father Almighty, if it be Thy Divine Will, allow me to serve Thy Son and His Mother daily in this struggle against the infernal enemy, where together in Communion of Thy Son’s Divine Mercy, we may bring forth the reign of the Immaculate Heart by placing the entire world on Her Green Scapular. Amen.
(Please recite one Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be for Pope Benedict’s intentions and recite the following prayer below daily.)
“Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”
