O Holy Martyr, Peter ToRot,
God chose you to serve his people as a catechist.
You took delight in your work and performed it loyally.
You strengthen your people’s faith and did not abandon them in time of intense suffering.
We rejoice that God has chosen to favor you as the first martyr of Papua New Guinea.
We pray that through your intercession we may persevere in time of trial and courageously profess our faith. Amen.
