    • Breakthrough: A Journey from Desperation to Hope

      Are you disconnected from God? Do you feel that your life has no hope? As a teenager, Fr. Rob Galea's reaction to those painful feelings was addiction, violence, and destructive friendships. When the recording artist and former Australian X Factor contestant finally let God in, his life completely changed. In Breakthrough, Galea shares his journey from scared teenager to passionate priest and invites you to learn more about the Catholic faith so you, too, can find hope in Christ. Rob Galea was a lonely, miserable teenager. He wanted to feel like he belonged, so he joined a gang. He went clubbing. He drank. He stole things. He lied. His reckless lifestyle ultimately led him to hide in fear for his life from other gang members. He was so desperate in those days spent in his dark bedroom that he contemplated ending his life. Then a phone call from his grandmother about a youth group at a nearby church—an invitation not originally intended for him—helped Galea turn his life around. When he finally let God break through his loneliness and fear, he began to experience freedom and God’s unconditional love. In Breakthrough, Galea takes you on his journey to seminary, the move from his home country of Malta to Australia, and the development of his ministry as a priest, speaker, singer/songwriter, and recording artist. Along the way, he’ll help you to see the life-changing journey of discipleship and how to find hope in your Catholic faith. (learn more)
