The Thinkers: A life dedicated to her faith, and to questioning its policies: "Best known for her belief that the Roman Catholic Church should be open to women's ordination, Chittister wrote:
'There is no doubt that women need to tell their stories. But at the same time, there comes a time when you are too tired of trying to be heard in a place like the church where no one wants to hear you. Then, you walk out of it, past it, beyond it. And often, invisibly. They think you're still there, but your heart is long gone and your spirit is free. I know.'"
