Enkindle 66 – 08.15.21 – Mary the Ark

In this reflection for the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Kristen Fisher shows how Mary fulfills and perfects the role of the Ark of the Covenant by carrying Jesus, and that her Assumption gives us the hope that one day our bodies will reunite with our souls in Heaven.

Our bodies are a sign to the world that God is present, powerful, good, and with us always. God wants us to know that our bodies can be a holy ark, carrying Jesus through our greatest battles, victories, and even just in the every day routine of life–bringing his love to those around us.

Kristen Fisher
Executive Director at Ablaze Family Ministries | + EPISODES
Kristen was raised in a Catholic family, but it wasn't until middle school when she really encountered the Lord. Her faith journey ultimately led her to graduate from Franciscan University with a Bachelors Degree in theology and anthropology, and she left with a heart that was ready to share the Faith in the same way that had changed her own life; youth ministry. Kristen served as a youth minister in the Archdiocese of Baltimore for 16 years, spending most of her time serving middle schoolers and their families, specifically. She left parish ministry to join our team as we seek to equip and empower families to evangelize their own kids in a fun, authentic and dynamic way, all while working alongside parish evangelists. Kristen has been married to her husband Greg for  15 years, and together they are blessed to be raising 4 children.
