    Our pastor will be investing us in the brown scapular tomorrow, 07/16/14 :). Thank you for your reflections, Cardinal Dolan. Where would we be without Mother Church!

    I have called, emailed or presented in person my desire to be enrolled in the Brown Scapular to over a dozen parishes in NY and a few in CT. I have been met with resounding ignorance, denials and even hostility. I have brought reading materials from as well as other legitimate websites, without success. I have been mocked, ‘Why do you want to do that?” “That is something they used to do years ago.” and I have been told “NO” and hung up on promptly. Cardinal Dolan – you need to educate your diocese!!!!! It is disgraceful that so many Churches are this ignorant. I have approached older pastors and they are often the most stringently against this devotion of Our Blessed Mother. I will keep trying but this is very sad. God Bless the Church, she is in trouble.
