Promotional Information

This book 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 religious women. 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.

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.


A great, great many stories need to be told about both vowed and non-vowed women if we are to articulate Francis' 'theology of women'. Patrick's work offers several such stories and, I hope, will spark interest and courage in writing more; her work deserves good and careful readings across the Church. * Studies in Christian Ethics *
Conscience and Calling is a beautifully written and powerful tribute to the courage and dedication of women religious. In a volume filled with penetrating insight into the present situation in the Catholic Church, Patrick describes how religious women have both worked and struggled with church authorities but have emerged with their consciences and vocations intact and renewed. This book opens up a history that needs to be known and celebrated while offering its readers a moral framework for understanding what it means for all of us to answer our callings. -- Susan A. Ross, Loyola University, Chicago, USA
