L'Abbé Pierre, GOQ was a French Catholic priest, member of the Resistance during World War II, and deputy of the Popular Republican Movement. In 1949, he founded the Emmaus movement, which has the goal of helping poor and homeless people and refugees. Abbé means abbot in French, and is also used as a courtesy title given to Catholic priests in French speaking countries. He was one of the most popular figures in France, but had his name removed from such polls after some time.
