Sister Emmanuelle, the Belgian-born nun who became the most popular nun in France, died on Sunday in the French town of Callian. She was 99. Sister Emmanuelle often worked in slums and impoverished areas in Tunisia, Turkey and Egypt, where she would create networks of clinics and schools. Later in her life, she would also often appear on French television where she became popular for speaking out for the needy. Sister Emmanuelle liked to describe herself as "no saint" but "vindictive" and "a little bit feminist." [AFP]
