Beginning in 1899, the life of Anthony Gallo was centered not only on his faith in God, but on his love for others.

It is incredibly fortunate that Father Gallo’s life paralleled a period where photography was commonplace. It as a result we have been able to compile a library of images of his childhood, his life as a priest, and the equally quintessential moments after his death that lead to his veneration.
