  1. Actually, a distinction should be made between a devotional scapular and a monastic scapular which St. Benedict intended as an apron similar to what farm workers wore to cover the monks' habit that gradually came to be part of the habit in his and many other orders.

    There are also many kinds of devotional scapulars, not just the Brown Scapular. You can read more about it here.
