Five Fold Scapular Question - dcmaccabees - 05-03-2016

In my sifting through old threads, I came across this question from Spero that was never answered:

(04-14-2012, 12:48 PM)Spero Wrote: I have had a 5 fold scapular for years and never got enrolled.
I got enrolled the other day but as I nop longer had the leaflet that came with it I can not remember the requirements of being enrolled.
I remember for the brown it is the daily rosary or Little ioffice of BVM, but what about the others.
Can anyone shed some light ???

May God bless you.

All the previous indulgence grants were abrogated in 1967 and had to be re-issued in order to be valid. When enrolled officially* in the Trinitarian Third Order (or spiritual membership), Confraternity of Our Lady of Sorrows, Confraternity of the Brown Scapular, and Confraternity of the Immaculate Conception (Marian), then one can receive a plenary indulgence on particular days by wearing the scapular, and also fulfilling the other usual requirements of a plenary indulgence. (Partial when not all of the requirements are fulfilled.) Daily prayers are required for members of each of the confraternities.

* For the Brown Scapular it is not necessary to enroll officially.


History
- - - - - -

Fivefold 1910 (any priest may invest) Redemptorist Sacramental (originally 4 scapulars):

1. White (Trinity) 1198 The indulgences of this confraternity were last approved by a Decree of the Congregation of Indulgences of 13 August 1899

3. Brown (Carmel) 1251, 1908

Confraternity of the Seven Dolours of Mary

5. Blue (Immaculate Conception, for conversion of sinners) 1605, 1671, 1992 This devotion bore such rich fruits that on 30 January 1671 Pope Clement X expressly granted the faculty to bless and invest with this scapular. Pope Clement XI granted certain indulgences for the wearing of the scapular, succeeding popes increased the number, and the summary was approved by the Congregation of Indulgences first in 1845 and finally on 26 August 1882
Order: Order of Theatine Nuns (Clerics Regular); Theatine Confraternity

6. Red (Passion) 1847 approved and indulgenced by Pope Pius IX on 25 June 1847.

The Confraternity of Our Lady of Sorrows, established for over a hundread years at the Basilica of Our Lady of Sorrows in Chicago, has been reorganized so that it might meet the needs of such people."

Explanations
It is necessary to go to Communion on the day of receiving of the Blue Scapular and joining the Confraternity of the Immaculate Conception of the B.V.M. The scapular should be made out of blue cloth; it must be blessed and conferred by an authorized priest or deacon. The Scapular should be worn so that its one part is over the chest and the other over the back. We recommend it be worn day and night.

4. Third Order of the Most Holy Trinity

You may engage with the Order Spiritually, by sending a letter to the National Level Executive Director with your request.

A spiritual membership is one in which the lay person desires a deeper relationship with the Holy Trinity, but does not wish to or cannot become fully professed. Each person must make this decision as you discern and pray for guidance in the relationship you are seeking. In cases where there is no Fraternity established, we ask that the scapular be received from your parish priest in the format provided in the package you will receive. This membership will be recorded. In order to defray costs of the scapular, shipping materials, certificate, and postage, a donation of at least five dollars is requested.

Third Order of the Most Holy Trinity
Plenary Indulgence:
1. On the day of their admission;
2. on the day on which they make their commitment or renew it in a religious ritual;
3. on the following feasts:
-- the Blessed Virgin Mary of Good Remedy (October 8)

Re: Five Fold Scapular Question - Poche - 05-04-2016

Once you are enrolled in all five scapulars then you only need to wear one of them and you receive the benefits of all five.

Do you know where the documents can be found? 

Would it be these?

Decrees of the Sacred Apostolic Penitentiary 



179/67/R of Nov 17, 1967

144/68/R of June 25, 1968
11533/68/R of Sept. 17, 1968



I went on the Vatican site and the documents stop at 1999.

Here is a link to the Enchiridion of Indulgences that lists all the standard indulgences.

Here is a link to new or temporary indulgences issued by the Apostolic Penitentiary up to 2020.

Are you able to get the documents themselves off that second site?
