brwon scapular
Question from joseph on 10-26-2007:

hello Dr. Geraghty,

i was wondering if my enrollment in the brown scapular will be void if i sin...

do i need to re-enroll again after i confess?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 11-04-2007:

Dear Joseph,

Like the Church, the confraternity of the brown scapular is made for sinners. Just as one is part of the Church, so one is still enrolled in the brown scapular even when they sin. Unless one has deliberately cut themselves off from the Church, they are still part of the Church. What they have to do is go to confession. Unless one has deliberately cut themselves off from the brown scapular, all they have to do is go to confession to receive its graces again.

Dr. Geraghty
