Hi Thomas,

You said:

  • Who is called the patron saint of missions even though she never left her convent?

There are four patron saints of missions:

  1. St. Francis Xavier
  2. St. Peter Claver
  3. St. Therese of Lisieux
  4. St. Leonard of Port Maurice

You are probably talking about St. Therese of Lisieux who is also a Doctor of the Church.

You said:

  • Who is the sister who won the Nobel peace prize for her work with the poor of India?

That is Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. She will probably be canonized a saint some day.

Here is the web site that is promoting her cause for sainthood:

Hope this answers all of your questions,

Mike
