This Sterling Silver Scapular medal measures 7/8 x 1/2 inches. It comes with an 18 inch sterling silver lite curb chain. The front of the medal bears the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The back of the medal depicts the image of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
In 1910 Pope Pius X approved the medallion form of the scapular. It bears an image of the Sacred Heart on one side, the Blessed mother on the other, and may be worn or carried in place of a cloth scapular, under certain special circumstances, by a person already invested with a scapular. These special circumstances would include situations where wearing a non-metal scapular would be impractical, say in the case of a swimmer or in doing work which could result in damage or destruction of a cloth scapular.
