Retired Catholic Priest From Preston Releases Autobiography
Preston resident and retired Catholic priest Rev. Msgr. Francis A. Galles released an autobiography that chronicles his spiritual journey and other relationships he has formed with God over his 90-year-life.
The book is titled "The Last of My Many Friendships, where he presents his work and fellowships as well as the beauty he found in God's movements during his life.
“I wrote this book because I find tremendous spiritual and psychological value in gathering up both the personal and shared events and experiences of one’s individual journey,” Msgr. Galles said. “This autobiography has served as a reminder to me of how graciously and mysteriously God works in the course of a human life and how blessed I have been in the relationships I have enjoyed during my 90 years.”
Rev. Msgr. Francis A. Galles was born in Iona, Minn., in 1927. Msgr. Galles completed his studies at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa, the Catholic University in Washington D.C. and the Gregorian University in Rome and was ordained to the priesthood at the Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome in 1952.
