1. Secures one the special protection of the Blessed Virgin in all the necessities of life, at the hour of death, and in Purgatory.
2. It should be worn day and night over the shoulders. It must be received from a person duly authorised to confer it, and the recipient’s name must be entered on the register of the Confraternity.
3. No special prayers are ordained, but in order to secure the favour of being released from Purgatory on the first Saturday after death, chastity according to one’s state must be observed, and the Little Office of Our Lady daily recited. The blessing of the first scapular extends to those which are afterwards substituted.
