When we think of England and Marian apparitions, we naturally think of Our Lady of Walsingham. However, she appeared there at least twice. We often forget that the scapular devotion is itself English in origin. St Simon Stock "received" the Holy Scapular at Cambridge, England, on Sunday, 16 July, 1251 from the Blessed Mother herself.
Just as a reminder: The Holy Scapular must be composed of two segments of brown 100% wool cloth with the one segment hanging on the wearers chest, and the other hanging on their back. These segments are joined by two straps which overlap each shoulder, hence the word "scapular". Images sewn onto the Brown Scapular are superfluous.
