“No doubt the French feel close to this out of the ordinary priest, this man so humane with his contradictions, his sometimes difficult character, his impatience, his insolence, his anger, his stubbornness, his outspokenness, his indiscipline… not to mention his humour and humility, his deep deep humility.”
Les carnets intimes de l’Abbé Pierre – Denis Lefèvre
“The Foundation is duty-bound by perpetuating its creator’s work, to get its message through. It has the moral obligation to provide support to the most vulnerable, in a globalised society where we no longer know how to work towards a true, humane and serene society.”
Raymond Etienne, President of Foundation Abbé Pierre.
