Indonesian TV celebrity guided by Catholic values

Popular Indonesian television presenter Daniel Mananta has put his Catholic faith into practice in a far-flung corner of the sprawling archipelago. The TV celebrity was impressed by the way local Catholics would walk many kilometers to attend services in the run-down chapel in Ruteng Diocese. "I was touched by the experience and wanted to fix the church," said Mananta, 36, the first of two brothers from a family of retail merchants.
