I believe for the scapular you have to be enrolled, which your priest can do. I was enrolled when I converted. Ask your priest! I’ve never heard of the sacred heart badge, so I can’t help you with that. I’d love to find out about it though!
Do you need permission to wear these, or can you just purchase them and wear them? And how are they worn?
Its so hard finding information on these things for new catholics. I’ve found tons of information on why to wear them, their origin, etc., but I need some more basic information. Thanks ladies!!
You are also supposed to wear the cord of St. Joseph. It is for chastity. It has seven knots at the end of one side. You are supposed to meditate on the seven sorrows and the seven joys of St. Joseph. You are also supposed to say seven glory be’s.
