Enkindle Reflection Topics

The reflections on the Enkindle Family Scriptures Reflections podcast are usually centered around the Catholic liturgical calendar. And while the liturgy itself is centered around certain cyclic themes, each of the reflections has a particular focus or topic of interest. This page contains a listing of a variety of topics, with links to Enkindle reflections that touch on that topic.

Sacraments and Feasts

These reflections focus on the meanings of the various liturgical feasts and holy days, or discuss the Sacraments of the Church.

  • All In It With You –  Jesus is the Good Shepherd, and that he is with us in whatever suffering we’re enduring.
  • Still With Us – the same Jesus that spent his days teaching his disciples and ascended into Heaven is still with us, in our hearts and especially in the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
  • New Hearts – Fr. Erik Arnold encourages us to bring the wounded parts of our hearts that come out during times of stress and tribulation to him, to ask for healing so that we may bear good fruit in our lives.
