Peter ToRot - Amen

In the Papal visit of 1995, ToRot was beatified, the first step towards being declared a saint. The exhumation of his bones , rosary beads and belt so the Pope could bless the casket in Port Moresby, (the volcanic eruption in 1994 put an end to his visit to the area), caused quite a controversy .....

....but he nows lies in peace in the church.

Hopefully - Air N.G. willing - I will be home tomorrow!!

Jules, Thank you for posting the story on Peter ToRot-- love this b/w shot, it feels kind of sad, but maybe it's the story, too.
