Four Way Scapular Medal - Sterling Silver plated - Petite
* Please note, our previous Petite Scapular is now called our Small Scapular Medal *
We are excited to introduce the new PETITE Scapular Medal. Measuring just 3/8" with a beautiful 16" chain, this medal is perfect for women and young women of all ages.
In 1910, Pope St. Pius X introduced a Scapular Medal which may be substituted in most cases for any of the various scapulars. Valid enrollment in the (cloth) scapulars must, however, be made before the substitution. The condition for this substitution is that this medal has an image of Our Most Holy Redeemer, Jesus Christ, showing His Sacred Heart, and the obverse that of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary.
According to Father John Hardon’s Catholic Dictionary the scapular medal may be worn for any reasoneven for reasons of convenience. The scapular medal has all the same indulgences that are associated with cloth scapular.
What makes this Four Way Scapular Medal one of the most popular is that this one medal combines the bulk of four medals into one convenient piece. Individually the medals would be heavy to wear and costly to buy, but together they form one simple pendant.
