ordocarmelitarum:

World Mission Sunday, observed on the third Sunday of October, was created by Pope Pius XI in 1926 as the day of prayer and propaganda of Catholic missions.

ordocarmelitarum:

Throughout her life as a Carmelite, St. Thérèse wanted to be a missionary. She hoped to be sent to Vietnam, where there were two Carmelite monasteries that had a connection with Lisieux. The monastery in Saigon began with nuns from Lisieux, and the monastery in Hanoi was an off-shoot of the one in Saigon. The prioress recognized Therese’s missionary vocation, but hesitated to send her because of her poor health.
Determined not only to love God herself, but also to lead others to know and love Him, Thérèse offered her prayers and her own sufferings for missionaries around the world. The last eighteen months of her life were a time of bodily suffering and spiritual trials. She died September 30, 1897.
