Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Rob Galea: succesful young singer and... parish priest

2013-11-29

Maltese singer Robert Galea goes beyond numbers: he is just 32 years-old and has already recorded 3 music albums and is preparing to release the fourth one in April. He has also played along with Australian superstars like Guy Sebastian, Paulini and Gary Pinto. 

But perhaps the most striking fact in Robert Galea's life is that he is capable of combining his musical career with his vocation as a parish priest.

FR. ROBERT GALEA
Singer and Priest
"My vocation, first and foremost, is to be a priest. But by the grace of God I can use music to carry this message which I am called to carry as a priest, and that is the message of the love of God, and that is the message of the word of God."

As a boy, Fr. Galea loved watching and imitating the singers that appeared on MTV. He started playing music when he was 17, and his first and second album proved a success in his homeland. 

Some time later, Fr. Galea moved to Australia: he was already attending the seminary and had to go overseas to gain pastoral experience. He was ordained a priest in 2010 and now looks after a parish in Shepparton, Victoria, in Australia. 

Fr. Galea had the chance of singing before thousands of people in several WYD's. In fact, 200,000 people heard him sing 'Above All' at the Ways of the Cross in Sydney.

FR. ROBERT GALEA
Singer and Priest
"My greatest satisfaction is when I am in the middle of a song and I am able to close my eyes, and I am able to pray and to sing to my audience of one, to a God that I... To a God who loves me and who cares for me so much.”

In his songs Fr. Galea talks about the almighty love of God, human weakness and the struggle for holiness. 

With a scheduled pop-dance album for April 2014, he will continue repeating what he sings in one of his most cheered songs, that 'God does not make rubbish'.
