In the summer of 1251, the Carmelite order of hermits was experiencing a time of oppression and hardship. After fleeing their Mt. Carmel home to escape violence, they floated about Europe, struggling to find a new home as they navigated local hostility and skepticism.
In the face of these trials, Br. Simon Stock (now St. Simon Stock) appealed to Our Lady for help and assurance. Our Lady of Mount Carmel appeared to him in response with the gift of the brown scapular. She offered this garment as a sign of divine protection for the Carmelite order and promised special privileges for those who wear it faithfully.
This medal depicts Our Lady of Mount Carmel crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth. Her Divine Son sits on her lap, crowned as our King. Both figures hold the brown scapular out the viewer, and Our Lady can be seen with a sweet smile on her face.
