 Our Description

 

In the last few years, the priesthood has been challenged by crisis and tension. Addressing this crisis, licensed psychologist and director of the Saint Luke Institute, Fr. Stephen Rossetti stresses that psychology can be effective in enriching the lives of priests, and the priesthood itself, if it works with a basis of spirituality. Rossetti invites priests to recognize the dignity of their calling through honest and psychologically based self-assessment because happiness in the priesthood flows from both wholeness and holiness.

Rossetti also highlights the need for systemic changes to coincide with personal conversions. He calls for a change in the culture of clerical life; emphasizes the need for greater accountability, openness and honesty on all levels; demands stronger relationships between bishops and priests; and suggests changes in seminary formation that will address the personal challenges faced by priests.
