Papua New Guinea, a Melanesian nation located north of Australia and east of Indonesia. Nearly all its population is Christian with 27% Catholic. One of the great Catholic influences still today is blessed Peter ToRot – a lay catechist who through his own intense prayer life and daily Communion ministered to his people of Rakunai village. He, along with other Catholic missionaries, was arrested in 1942 by the Japanese invaders during the Second World War. They were held in concentration camps – prevented by the Japanese from worshipping or teaching the Faith for fear that they would pray for the Japanese defeat. Peter was tortured and killed for his Faith. Host Mark Riedemann interviews Bishop Rochus Tatamai msc of Bereina diocese, a great grandnephew of blessed Peter ToRot.
