Hi, guys —

I recently bought a bag of homemade scapulars and have been giving them out. There are all kinds of things about them being Blessed.

  • Are they?

We already blessed old ones.

  • How do we do this properly?

The proper way to bless all sacramentals: Rosaries, Bibles, Scapulars, etc. is to have them blessed by a local priest or pastor who is faithful to the Church.

If you are unsure whether they were properly blessed get them blessed by a faithful priest again.

I hope this helps,
