The author argues that women's "extravagant affections" for the ordinary and extraordinary in life - which include an openness to ambiguity, an honouring of the diversity of experience and a concern for justice - provide a new and exciting way of understanding the sacrements. So although women are still excluded from most official sacramental leadership, they are engaged in sacramental ministry at many levels.
