A Letter of thanks and support from Mary Wagner for the Rosary Bouquet:"...whenever someone tells me they are praying...for the women in here, it warms my heart..."

The Mother of God over the Vanier Centre for Women
in Milton, Ontario

June 28th, 2015

A few weeks ago, my friend Jack proposed to readers the offering of a Spiritual Bouquet for my sisters-in-green, here at Vanier. I want to thank everyone who is praying for us. Whenever someone tells me they are praying, not only for me, Linda and the babies and their mothers,  but also for the women here, it warms my heart a great deal. We all need prayer.

The need here is special in that many of the women do not have ties with a healthy family  or even, sometimes, with one person. Most are open to hearing about God, to some form of prayer or reading the word of God, but they lack the connection on the outside with someone who is seeking to live for God; they do not have a spiritual guide. Who is praying for them? 

In your prayers, please remember that often enough women arrive who are pregnant. The temptation to abort is great under these circumstances. 

Just as the cloistered prayer of so many sisters and brothers interceding on our behalf throughout the world rises up to God, who showers down graces as He sees fit, so will the graces from your prayers penetrate these walls and enter the hearts of many women here. Please continue to pray for us and please encourage others to as well! Thank-you!

God bless you,  Mary

Thanks to Mary Wagner, who reminds of the absolute necessity of her mission. By ending up in prison because she tried to saved lives, she is now in position to fight for lives among the women living with her in prison. Amazing Grace. God bless you. Susan Fox www.christsfaithfulwitness.com

I try to pray every day for both Mary and Linda. Based on her message I must include those women entering prison who are pregnant.
Thank you to this website for helping to keep their witness alive.
