This volume probes the meaning and ethical implications of the powerful symbol of vocation from the vantage of contemporary Catholic women, with particular attention to the experiences of women religious. Intended as a follow-up to Liberating Conscience: Feminist Explorations in Catholic Moral Theology, the new book will benefit many readers, including Catholic leaders, laity, and religious, as well as persons interested in Christian ethics and American religious history more generally. The work treats twentieth-century history and more recent developments, including tensions between the Vatican and progressive Catholics, the development of lay ministries, and the movement to ordain women deacons, priests, and bishops.

About the Author:

Anne E. Patrick, SNJM is William H. Laird Professor of Religion and the Liberal Arts, emerita, at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, USA. She is a past president of the Catholic Theological Society of America and a founding vice-president of the International Network of Societies for Catholic Theology. Her writings on religious, ethical, and literary topics have appeared in many books and journals, and she is the author of Liberating Conscience: Feminist Explorations in Catholic Moral Theology and Women, Conscience, and the Creative Process.

Review:

“It is meticulously documented, written in an accessible style, and based in insightful analysis of difficult situations...Change happens slowly, but chronicling it in concrete words and connecting the dots between and among people, places, and ideas and actions is a real service. Patrick does that work well in this book, for which readers will that her for generations to come.” ―Mary E. Hunt, Dan R. Stiver, National Catholic Reporter

“This book is both deeply informative and a joy to read...Her inclusive vision seeks to account for the rich diversity of women's experiences with, and reactions toward, a church plagued with sacramental sexism, without losing sight of either the great strides women have made in and out of the church, or the long road that lies ahead for women's full baptismal dignity to be recognized. That Patrick enlivens discussion about the sins of institutional sexism while keeping these sins in perspective and remaining mindful of the privilege of white, middle-class feminists exemplifies the virtues of justice, inclusivity, and holiness that are the subject of this book.” ―Natalia Imperatori-Lee, American Catholic Studies (Vol. 125, No. 2)

“Patrick takes a fresh look at vocations which shows it as an outgrowth of love. She uses as her framework Margaret Farley's book Just Love in which one of the major discussions in that book connects justice with love. For Patrick, therefore, vocations that are based on love for the Church must be grounded in a justice-centered respect for the love that the person is expressing.” ―Robert Huttmeyer, Catholic Library World

“Anne Patrick's text explores the complexity of women's ecclesia vocations through the lens of moral theology using case studies, typological analysis, copious research, as well as reflection on decades of her own vocation in religious life. This wonderful book synthesizes a great deal of contemporary work on Catholic women's experience and women's holiness, while simultaneously putting forth a robust analysis of female notions of vocation in the church.” ―Natalia Imperatori-Lee, American Catholic Studies Vol. 125, No. 2
