A Prayer for Mary Wagner before the Black Madonna: "our dear sister...thank-you for your defense of life...it is the greatest gift you have given to the world!"
The prayer of Father Peter Bałtarowicz addressed to
Mary Wagner and the Inmates of Vanier
Here is your Mother.
Thank you, Jesus, for Mary, your mother, for her good heart. Thanks to her love, our hearts become good, tender, beautiful…
am happy that today in Vanier Centre for Women is present the icon of
Our Lady of Czȩstochowa. Personally I join with you, at this moment,
through the Holy Mass, which I am celebrating in my village of
The Most Holy Mother in her gaze embraces everybody:
priests, prison staff and administration, guests…but especially she
looks on you women inmates! This is a gaze of love and mercy.
To each of
you the Holy Mother desires to say: “You are my beloved child of God”.
She gives each of you Jesus! Hope! God will not abandon you! God Our
Father will help you to further live beautiful lives. The world is
menaced by wars. The world needs you to bring about peace.
want, together with the Most Holy Mother and her Son Jesus, to take a
moment to speak of our dear sister Mary Wagner. Thank you for your stand
towards the defence of life! It is the greatest gift which you have
given to the world! Thank you for being present to the unborn children
and their mothers, as one who would lean over the rail of a cradle and
behold the precious child — this is real peace!
May the encounter with
the Most Holy Mother be for you all, a blessing. The Most Holy Mother
knows your hearts, knows your needs. Pray and she will fill your hearts
with love. I thank the women, who together with Mary, pray every day!
Kiss the icon of the Blessed Mother!
