This brown escapulario with the image of Jesus in the middle represents my Grandmas faith. My Grandma gave me the escapulario when I went to visit her in Mexico for the first time, I was only four year old at the time. My Grandma was happy to meet me,but when it was my last day in Mexico she gave my brothers and me a escapulario.The escapulario means a lot to me because I haven’t seen my grandma in 12 years.
