While numerous polemical works have sought to justify why women should be ordained as Catholic priests, this book is the first sustained reflection on the differences that would be apparent with women at the altar. In the face of a centuries-old convention of a male priesthood, what are the implications for the Catholic church of ordaining women? Can women priests completely assimilate within the theology of Catholicism, particularly in relation to the sacraments? In an analysis that deftly unites feminist criticism, psychoanalysis, and Catholic theology, Kelley Raab explores the symbolic implications of women at the altar, providing rich insight into issues of gender, symbolism, and power.

Supported by interviews with women in the Episcopal priesthood (which has ordained women since 1977), Raab draws upon object-relations theory, Freudian concepts of the unconscious, and French feminist thinkers Julia Kristeva and Luce Irigaray to show how the celebration of mass by women priests would require a constructive reenvisioning of core dimensions of Catholic theology.
