Fr Robert Galea is an ordained Catholic Priest and is currently serving in Shepparton, Australia after moving to Australia in 2007 from Malta, his home country. He’s a singer song writer, and author of Breakthrough, a journey from desperation to hope.
Now this priest really is something else. He even tried his luck on the Australian X Factor contestant, back in 2015. He made it through to Boot Camp but voluntarily left after Boot Camp due to parish commitments.
This guy might possibly be the coolest priest that Malta, and the world for that matter, has ever seen. Singer song/writer by day, serving sermons by night. And can you imagine how lit his sermons are?
He’s even got some bangers with Ivan Diaz and Malta’s very own Ira Losco… I mean, this guy is the definition of lit.
Fr Rob announced on his Facebook page that his book, Breakthrough, is being adapted into a Hollywood movie, and we simply cannot wait!
In Breakthrough, Galea shares his journey from scared teenager to passionate priest and invites you to learn more about the Catholic faith.
The story tells a tale of Fr Rob himself, 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.
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… and now, all of this is being adapted into a Hollywood movie!
We really hope the movie will be partly filmed in Malta, at least!
A huge well done to Fr Rob!
