Prayers of Hannah


I was recently made aware of Nicole Roccas, PhD, newest book Under the Laurel Tree” which is available now on Amazon and Audible.

“Infertility ranks among the hardest griefs a couple can face. Yet this painful issue is all too often neglected in both Church and society. Under the Laurel Tree traces one God-fearing couple’s journey through the emotional turmoil of childlessness. By following the story of Saints Joachim and Anna, this book helps individuals and couples navigate the loss inherent in infertility amid the pain of shame, separation, anger, bargaining, and blamelessness. In walking alongside Joachim and Anna, we encounter not only a life-giving template for grief, but also the path back to ourselves, our partner, and our God-given vocation of eucharistic thanksgiving.” Nicole Roccas

Come join our New networking team of support Springs in the Desert.

God’s words to my heart many years ago: “This ministry is BIGGER than what you think and NOT what you think”. Truly it is a work being done in each faithful heart to reach beyond the depths of physical fertility to the roots of a deeper spiritual fertility.

Praised be Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Anne & Joachim…..

Hannah’s Tears

Archbishop Fulton Sheen – The Woman I Love Part 4

We offer prayer support and comfort to the brokenhearted who suffer the pains of  infertility at any stage of life, difficult pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth, or the early death of a child.  This ministry intercedes for Catholic/Christian doctors, nurses, and their supportive personnel. We also serve as a vehicle of education in the proper channels of Catholic fertility practices as well as offering information resources to those seeking fertility care and/or adoption.

Call for Infertility Support Groups

Please join the Hannah’s Tears out-reach as we try to inform those suffering with infertility that they are not alone!!!
Have you started a Catholic Infertility support group in your area?
We at Hannah’s Tears would like to start a list of such groups for this blog and also our new web site. Please email or leave a comment below with the group name, location, and time of your group’s meeting. We hope to keep this list going as a resource for women needing support or if someone wants to start their own group.
Thanks and God bless!

A New Infertility Support Group

If you live in Lexington, Kentucky or close enough to drive there, a new support group is starting:

“Just relax; it will happen.” “When will you have children of your own?” “Why aren’t you a mother yet?” If your a woman enduring infertility, such questions are common and very painful. Statistics say that 1 in every 6 couples suffer infertility; yet the issue is hardly talked about…until now.

A support group is forming to give such women the chance to share their hurt, build each other up, and have access to a wealth of infertility information…all from a Catholic perspective. The first meeting will take place on Saturday, January 24th at Seton Catholic School (part of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church) in the library from 9:00am-11:00am.
