The Scapular of St. Dominic is a Roman Catholic devotional scapular.[1] In 1903, this scapular was endowed by St. Pope Pius X and an indulgence of 300 days was granted to the faithful who wear it, as often as they devoutly kiss it.


The scapular is white, and although no specific image is prescribed for it, the scapulars distributed by the Dominicans in Rome have an image of St. Dominic kneeling before the crucifix on the front and on the other side an image that Blessed Reginald of Orleans receiving the habit from the hands of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
