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:
“Negation is the minds first freedom, yet a negative habit is fruitful only so long as we exert ourselves to overcome it, adapt it to our needs; once acquired it can imprison us.”
—E.M. Cioran (b. 1911)
“... religious experience, as we have studied it, cannot be cited as unequivocally supporting the infinitist belief. The only thing that it unequivocally testifies to is that we can experience union with something larger than ourselves and in that union find our greatest peace.”
—William James (18421910)
