About the Virtual Workshop

This online workshop is open to everyone and provided through a ten-part, self-paced video series hosted by Fr. Gallagher. Over the course of the workshop, we’ll explore letters written between Ven. Lanteri and his spiritual directees:

  • Gabriella Solaro della Margarita, a grieving mother to whom he offers spiritual solace
  • Sister Leopolda Mortigliengo, who was discouraged by living a religious life in difficult circumstances
  • Leopoldo Ricasoli, a well-educated and influential layman living all the joys and sorrows of family life

Once you sign up, you’ll begin to receive weekly emails with a video to watch. You’ll also gain access to a workshop page where all 10 lessons can be viewed at any time.

About His Book

Published in 2019, Fr. Gallgher’s Overcoming Spiritual Discouragement: The Wisdom and Spiritual Power of Venerable Bruno Lanteri offers readers a roadmap for leaving the darkness and rediscovering spiritual joy despite the challenges put in our way by the enemy.

“Wonderful and practical resource for building a stronger prayer life. During this pandemic, all Christians need support and encouragement. This book is not just for Catholics. Any Christian that desires a closer daily walk with Christ and to help others can benefit. It is an easy and slow read. I find myself taking notes and looking up the scriptures. Most highly recommend!”
