Scapular of the Precious Blood


Badge of the Confraternity of the Precious Blood. Priests who can receive the faithful into the Confraternity of the Precious Blood have also the faculty of blessing and investing these with this red scapular (or a red girdle). No special indulgences are connected with the wearing of this scapular, and the wearing of it is left optional to the members of the confraternity. It is red, and one part usually bears a picture of the chalice with the Precious Blood adored by angels; the other segment which hangs at the back is simply a smaller portion of red cloth.
