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, Fr. Rob 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.
Contemporary culture compels approaches to evangelization that are new in ardor, method, and expression. Fr. Rob Galea's efforts to reach young people with the saving power of the Gospel exemplify all three, and in his new book, he reveals precisely where his zeal for the mission originates—in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who is living, present, and accessible to all people in his Church.

Fr. Rob Galea's story reveals what happens when God is allowed to break through our little, personal worlds. It is the story of a dynamic, young, comitted Catholic priest, singer, and performer, and a testimony to the Mighty One who continues to do great things in the lives of young women and men today.
—Rev. Thomas Rosica, C.S.B., CEO of the Salt and Ligh Catholic Media Foundation
Fr. Rob bears his heart and soul in Breakthrough. His vulnerability and authenticity are refreshing, his story is encouraging, and his love for the Lord is an inspiration to anyone who seeks Jesus and desires to give thier life to him. I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone, especially young people who want to love the Lord and know where they fit and how God can use them.
