Rev. Msgr. Stephen Rossetti, D.Min., Ph.D., explores how to joyfully embrace and positively express sexuality in a celibate vocation.
The demand for sexual integrity on our celibates has never been higher than it is today. Yet the secular pressures mitigating against this integrity are enormous. In order to stand up to the pressure and to live faithfully, coming to know one’s complete sexual identity and integrating one’s sexuality in a celibate context is essential. Yet, this is not enough. The call today is for a “positive integrity” that joyfully embraces and expresses one’s sexuality in a celibate vocation.
Priests, deacons, men and women religious, lay ministers, and those involved in vocations, formation, or clergy and ministry personnel needs.
