A Day in the Life of an Exorcist: ‘Faith is Our Strongest Protection’| National Catholic Register

Exorcist Msgr. Stephen Rossetti has a heavy caseload of people suffering from demonic possession or harassment. He has been the chief exorcist of the Archdiocese of Washington for more than 13 years. Msgr. Rossetti is also a research associate professor at The Catholic University of America, a licensed psychologist and author of many books and articles. He heads the St. Michael Center for Spiritual Renewal, a ministry of deliverance and support for the renewal of priestly spirituality. It includes a blog that chronicles Msgr. Rossetti’s battles against the devil. His latest book, Diary of an Exorcist: Demons, Possessions, and the Modern-Day Battle Against Ancient Evil, is a glimpse into the life as an exorcist and a powerful testimony to the healing power of Jesus Christ. In an interview with the Register, Msgr. Rossetti spoke about his new book and his ministry.   Why did you want to write this book? The book is a compilation of my daily blogs, and it is exactly what the title says:  a diary of my own experiences. I wrote it first of all for other exorcists. There are general books on the subject, but an exorcist needs to know a lot more; he needs more detail on what happens and what to do and not to do.  These daily reflections go into detail on the daily life of an exorcist. Also, I am hoping that it helps the general public realize the truths of our faith. One thing for sure, the daily experiences of an exorcist reaffirm everything the Church teaches!  It’s all true.
