In it Roy integrates his life experience with the unfolding of
the voice of his conscience to work for justice. 
"The poor  also introduced me to the importance and meaning of the word “solidarity” in the faith community. In Bolivia, it meant “to accompany” and “to walk with.” To be in solidarity meant to make another’s struggle for justice, peace, and equality your struggle."
Roy covers all the theological, moral and humane reasons for the ordination of women.
"We are again grateful for this Spirited and fiery prophet who walks with us."

Bridget Mary's Response:
I am grateful for Roy Bourgeois courageous solidarity with our Roman Catholic Women Priests' Movement for gender justice in the Roman Catholic Church! Roy is a modern day prophet speaking truth to power. The full equality of women in all areas of the church including at the altar is the will of God in our times.  Bridget Mary Meehan, ARCWP,
