Tip 8: Give someone a Marian gift

“It is recommended to give someone a Marian medal, or the Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, blessed by a priest.”

Note: A priest must enroll a person into the Brown Scapular Confraternity in order for the Scapular wearer to receive the scapular’s blessings. Once enrolled, the Scapular-wearer already receives the blessings attached to the Scapular.
