Fr. Marie-Eugène is well known as the author of I want to see God (translated in 6 languages), as the Carmelite Father who served the Church in important positions and as the founder of a secular Institute of consecrated life. That is true.
In 1961 he said :
« What does our world need today, especially in front of that wave of atheism sweeping it and threathening not only our civilization but also its soul, threatening life itself and drawing it away from God ? The world lacks the testimony of God ! God must be rendered alive for the world. Maybe through exterior actions, through activity. Or rather, through the overflowing of God’s love. The world needs God’s manifesting Himself ; it needs a certain experience of God. »
