The religious members of the Order of Saint Jerome (monks and nuns) adopted as traditional religious habit a white tunic with a brown scapular (equal to the Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel used by the Carmelite religious) and a hood of same color.
Famous quotes containing the words habit and/or religious:
“If I had my life over again I should form the habit of nightly composing myself to thoughts of death. I would practise, as it were, the remembrance of death. There is no other practice which so intensifies life. Death, when it approaches, ought not to take one by surprise. It should be part of the full expectancy of life. Without an ever- present sense of death life is insipid. You might as well live on the whites of eggs.”
—Muriel Spark (b. 1918)
“Friendship demands a religious treatment. We talk of choosing our friends, but friends are self-elected. Reverence is a great part of it.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
