In May of 1957, a German Carmelite priest published an amazing true story that demonstrates the power of Our Blessed Mother and how now, even in our own times, we can expect miracles if we approach her with a humble confidence. In this particular instance, her loving protection was made manifest through her Brown Scapular.
In Westboden, Germany, a terrible tragedy occurred when a neighborhood of over 20 houses caught on fire. Being lined up in a row, the hungry flames quickly traveled from one house to the next. One of the buildings was inhabited by a couple families. who, upon seeing the flames steadily advancing, immediately hung a Brown Scapular on the front door of their home. The fire came, and flames flew all around the home.
