Exchange between Sister Lucia and Fr. H. Rafferty, August 15, 1950:
Fr.: Did Our Lady of Mount Carmel come at Fatima?
Lucia: Oh, yes Father, she did.
Fr.: Why did Our Lady come that way? What did she mean?
Lucia: She meant that we should wear the Scapular.
Fr.: Everyone in America believes there are four conditions of the Fatima message. First of all, we are to say the Rosary every day. Secondly, we are to offer the sacrifices of our daily lives. Thirdly, we are to make communions of reparations on First Saturdays. Finally, we are to consecrate ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Lucia: Oh, there is one more condition-the wearing of the Scapular-the symbol of our consecration.
Fr.: Which is more important: the saying of the Daily rosary or the wearing of the scapular all of the time?
Lucia: Father, the Rosary and the Scapular are inseparable. You cannot have one without having the other...
