The Sabbatine Privilege is based on the second traditional promise of Our Blessed Mother in favor of those who wear Her Brown Scapular of Mt. Carmel: "On Saturday, as many as I shall find in Purgatory I shall free." To gain this privilege, one must:

  1. Wear the Scapular faithfully after valid enrollment
  2. Keep chastity according to one's state
  3. Daily recite the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin (By the permission from any priest, the praying of the daily Rosary may be substituted for the recitation of the Little Office to gain the Sabbatine Privilege. If one cannot read, in place of reciting the Office, one must abstain from meat on Wednesdays and Saturdays, except Christmas; in case of inconvenience, however, both the Office and the abstinence can be substituted by some other act of piety)
