French priest, champion of the poor, member of the R?©sistance and “France’s national conscience,” Henri Grou?®s AKA Abb?© Pierre has died today, aged 94. Abb?© Pierre was relentless, both in his charitable work and in his criticism of the social practices that alienated and hurt the disadvantaged. His words always cut to the conscience of any society that can stand to watch its weakest members suffer and die needlessly.

His mission will continue on in the work of Emmaus International, which he founded – but his thoughts and example will be missed by many.
