BLESSED TRINITY, SCAPULAR
A white scapular with a red and blue cross. It is the badge of the confraternity of the Most Blessed Trinity, said to have originated in a vision given to Pope Innocent III in 1198, when an angel in this garb told him to approve the Trinitarian Order for the redemption of captives among the Moslems.
