Spiritual “Dog Tags”

[Editor’s Note: The following letter is in response to the Faith Question article, “Is the Brown Scapular a Violation of Scripture?”]

Dear Catholic Exchange:

I enjoyed Pete Brown’s comments on the question regarding the use of the brown scapular. In one of Scott Hahn's tapes, he likened it to a “spiritual dog tag” that identifies us as followers of Christ much the same way that a military dog tag identifies a soldier.

Blessings to you!
