"How splendid the cross of Christ! It brings life, not death; light, not darkness; Paradise, not its loss. It is the wood on which the Lord, like a great warrior, was wounded in hands and feet and side, but healed thereby our wounds. A tree has destroyed us, a tree now brought us life" (Theodore of Studios).
Welcome to our blog! The Joyful Hearts are a Catholic Mother's prayer and study group of Bryan/College Station, Tx who meets bimonthly at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish of College Station. Babysitters care for our children across the hall while we meet, lap babies are welcome in the meetings.
Together we pray for the intentions of our church and all of its leaders, members and ministries; our families and friends, and our community and world. Through scripture, intercessory prayer and praise, we strive to support and encourage one another in our faith and our vocation as mothers.
Outside of our meetings, we also meet up for playdates and to celebrate holy days with our children. We hope you will join us soon!
