Breakthrough PB by Fr Rob Galea
Breakthrough is the story of Rob Galea's journey from troubled teen to Catholic priest in the Sandhurst Diocese in Victoria, Australia. It offers a path to joy and peace in a world where bad things happen.
Known to millions as a singer, songwriter or 'Father Rob from Australia's X Factor', many would not know how far removed his world is today from the 'little circle of hell' he created as a 16-year-old in Malta.
Struggling under the weight of addiction and depression, Fr Rob was considering ending his life when redemption came through a phone call. Knowing that he needed help, Fr Rob fought his demons to forge a relationship with Jesus Christ and has never looked back.
Breakthrough asks the reader to find their own way through adversity to the better life that awaits them.
It's a powerful story about recovery, redemption and faith, and is told by one of the most charismatic priests of our time.
You can also catch a little of his story on Compass (ABC TV) if it is still available.
"Who could to fail to be moved by this book? No matter what age you are, this book holds a promise ... Fr Rob is truly a man of God." Sister Hilda Scott, OSB, Benedictine Abbey, Jamberoo, NSW
