The badge of a confraternity established by the Servites of Mary. It is black, and often bears a picture of the Mother of Sorrows. It must be worn constantly if one wishes to gain the indulgences of the confraternity. The summary of indulgences was last approved by the Congregation of Indulgences on 7 March 1888. Priests may obtain from the General of the Servites the faculty to receive the faithful into the confraternity and to bless and invest with the scapular.
