Sr Lorena Jenal

Bold nun stands up for the voiceless

The incident is like ‘scenes of 500 years ago’.

“Stop the madness. Release the woman,” shouts the nun, Sr Lorena Jenal, who hurries to the village square.

The torturers beat the Swiss born missionary, who has lived and served as a missionary in Papua New Guinea for decades.

“Get out, otherwise we’ll burn you as a witch too!” they scream back.
