WATERTOWN, MA (January 11, 2012) – Msgr. Stephen J. Rossetti, To Be Interviewed on Live Talk Show of the CatholicTV® Network.

On January 13, 2012, Msgr. Stephen J. Rossetti will be featured on the CatholicTV Network’s nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day, to discuss the book, Why Priests Are Happy.

Msgr. Stephen J. Rossetti, a priest of the Diocese of Syracuse, served for many years at Saint Luke Institute in Silver Spring, Maryland, where he became president and CEO. A priest of the Diocese of Syracuse, he previously served in two diocesan parishes. He is a licensed psychologist with a doctorate in psychology from Boston College and a doctor of ministry from the Catholic University of America. He is the author of scores of articles and several books, including Born of the Eucharist, The Joy of Priesthood—recipient of a Catholic Press Association book award—and When the Lion Roars, and he is editor of Behold Your Mother.

Rossetti has received a Proclaim Award from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops as well as a Lifetime Service Award from the theological college of the Catholic University of America. In 2010, he received the Touchstone Award from the National Federation of Priests’ Councils for a lifetime of work with priests. He lectures to priests and religious internationally on priestly spirituality and wellness issues and currently serves as clinical associate professor of pastoral studies at the Catholic University of America.

In his groundbreaking Why Priests Are Happy: A Study of the Psychological and Spiritual Health of Priests, Rossetti, frequently consulted expert advice on the priesthood, and presents the findings from the most comprehensive survey of priests' happiness and spiritual lives ever undertaken. From this survey of nearly 2,500 priests from twenty-three dioceses in the United States, Rossetti discovered that American priests enjoy an extraordinarily high rate of happiness and satisfaction, among the highest of any profession.

Contrary to popular media portrayals, Rossetti finds that priests, as a group, are very happy men. They like the priesthood and are committed to it. In fact, 92 percent say they are happy in their ministry, among the highest rate of satisfaction of any profession in the United States.
