In 1953-54 she made a world tour.

In every country she looked for the most despised, the least accessible and most forgotten minorities. She wanted to tell them:

‘Jesus is your brother and I want you to accept me as your sister and friend’.

She wanted to plant communities everywhere to be sparks of God’s love.

Communities were opened among the Bageli of Cameroun, the Indians of Brazil, the Esquimaux of Alaska, the Aborigines of Australia and the Masai of Kenya.

By 1959 the community was truly international with 800 Little sisters in 184 communities all over the world. This rapid growth brought with it problems and criticism. However in 1964 the Community was officially recognized and approved by the Church.
