Saint Edana.
The saint is also known as Edana of West Ireland, Edaene and Etaoin. Not much is known about her though, not even when she was born. All we know is that she was Irish. She lived near the Boyle and Shannon rivers and that there is a well that was named after her. She is reportedly venerated in western Ireland where some parishes also bear her name.

Saint Goar
Goar was born in Aquitaine, France. He was ordained a priest and served as parish priest in Aquitaine for several years before leaving to become a hermit at Oberwesel, on the Rhine River in Germany. He was falsely accused of sorcery by the local bishop, Rusticus of Trier. Luckily the Saint was cleared of the charge by King Sigebert I of Austrasia. Rusticus on his part, ended up being deposed partly because of the false accusation and partly because of his extravagant lifestyle. Goar was offered Rusticus’ see but he chose to return to his hermitage.
He died in 575. Emperor Charlemagne later built a church over his hermitage.

Blessed Peter To Rot
Martyr of the Japanese Military.

Peter was born in 1912 in Rakunai, New Britain, an island off the northeast coast of Papua New Guinea. His father , To Puia, was the chielf of the village. His mother’s name was Maria la Tumul. Peter’s father had invited missionaries to the village and he and his family were baptized and were part of the region’s first generation of Catholics. Peter was trained as a catechist and in 1933, he became chief catechist in his village. He married Paula la Varpit, a former student and the couple had three children.
In 1942, when the invading Japanese military forces arrived in New Britain, they arrested all the missionary priests and their staff. Peter was arrested several times for opposing the Japanese policies. One 7 July 1945, one month before the Japanese surrendered to the Allied Forces in the Pacific region, Peter was taken to a hut in the secluded Vunaiara region. There, he was reportedly, given a lethal injection and was, again, reportedly held down while he died in agony.The next day, his body was returned to his village for burial.
Venerated on 2 April 1993 by Pope John Paul II and beatified on 17 January 1995 by Pope John Paul II
Canonization is pending.
