I have a confession to make.
I haven't worn a brown scapular in a veeeery long time.
Today, a beautifully embroidered scapular arrived from a friend in France.
Just before this all happened, I was invited to a private group by a priest I greatly admire for his holy boldness.
It is a group that helps to form Catholic leaders.
It calls for our total surrender to God, in all areas of our lives, so we can lead others on their journey.
I accepted and then thought...why have I been so reluctant to give ALL areas of my life?
Why Wendy, why?!
Something inside of me shifted as I put on my new brown scapular, tears ran down my face.
Perfect timing, my most Blessed Mother❤
I'm here for you. Stay tuned, The Holy Spirit is moving.
I made a short recording for you, below.
Loved and blessings...Your sister in Christ, Wendy

I have worn the brown scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel since being introduced to it in 1974 by Fr Lawrence McCarthy, now deceased, a Redemptorist priest who led a mission in our, then, parish of Our Lady, Help of Christians, in Whyalla, South Australia, apart from a period, 17-21, when I stopped practicing the Faith. My “conversion” was like “coming home” and Our Blessed Mother wasted no time in re-acquainting me with devotion to her and to her son, and to the brown scapular devotion, aided, I’m sure, by the prayers of St. Joseph, my confirmation patron saint. I’m sure it has brought me many blessings. I love your ministry, Wendy, and I bless and thank God for you and Walt and all the Cukierski family. I hope you have a blessed Christmas and a prosperous new year. I’m 60 next year but still feeling young, resident in Sydney, Australia.
