What happiness it gave me, when the brethren who came here bore witness of thy loyalty to the truth, the loyalty thou showest in all thy dealings.
3 John, 1:3
Mary Wagner, a humble handmaid of Our Lord Jesus Christ and our dear sister, remained silent today in Court.
|Mary, with her "Roses for Life"|
Several women gently clasped roses. As our Angel for Life's handcuffs were removed, she smiled lovingly at all her supporters, especially focusing on her dear friend, Linda Gibbons. One could see that Mary was deeply moved by the number of those who came to support her. She fought back what seemed to be a few tears of joy.
Mary was un-represented by counsel, and did not respond to the Judge's enquiries; if she had counsel, if she wished to speak. Mary remained silent. It was stated that there was "substantial disclosure" (the police report), and this same package was deposited next to Mary, which will be taken back to Vanier. The Judge then determined that a pre-trial hearing will be held on February 17th, at 10:00 a.m. at the College Courts in Room 503. He seemed taken aback by the support, the unity, the solidarity between Mary and supporters.

Well over thirty-five of us attended. Several people were even outside due to full capacity of the courtroom. The roses of soldarity will be taken to Vanier and pinned on the fence.
Afterwards I spoke again with Linda Gibbons and she was very pleased with the support Mary received. "It's wonderful and I felt the Polish 'muscle'. I am eternally grateful for their presence", speaking of the sizable Polish contingent that attended.
Dear friends, please continue to pray for Mary. We are in a major confrontation with the powers of darkness. This is a confrontation between Our Lord and satan.
