Flower among thorns
Purest of lilies,
That flowers among thorns,
Bring help to the true heart,
That in weakness turns,
And trusts in thee.
- Flos Carmelis
Because all the forms of our love for the Blessed Virgin and all its various modes of expression cannot be equally pleasing to Her, and therefore do not assist us in the same degree to reach Heaven, I say, without a moment’s hesitation, that the Brown Scapular is the most favored of all! No devotion has been confirmed by more numerous authentic miracles than the Brown Scapular.
