(LifeSiteNews) — My guest on today’s episode of The John-Henry Westen Show is Father James Schultz, who encourages us to invite the Blessed Virgin Mary into our lives by devoutly wearing the Brown Scapular.

When I wear the Scapular, I’m constantly reminded of Our Lady and receive great consolation from it. It’s like a hug from your heavenly mother.

On this episode, Father Schultz describes his experience with wearing the Brown Scapular and shares stories affirming its promised protection from evil.

“This little cloth is like … swaddling clothes, like a piece given from heaven, so to speak. And you’re inviting [Our Lady] in and you’re allowing her into your life, to be a part of your [life], like a sign of her there with you,” Father adds.
