scapular having been approved by the Congregation of Rites on 18 April, 1893,
various indulgences were granted for all the faithful who wear it by a Rescript
of the Congregation of Indulgences, 8 June, 1893 ("Acta S. Sedis",
scapular is to remind us of the virtues of St Joseph which are humility,
modesty and purity; to remind us to pray to St Joseph, asking him to pray
particularly for the Church; and to grant us a happy death.
