By Carl Marchand. 2015
" J'ai besoin que le monde m'aime. Voilà, c'est dit. Après neuf mois d'entretiens et de rencontres, Raymond Gravel me… lance cette toute petite phrase. Si quelques mots pouvaient le résumer, ce serait ceux-là. Ils sont la définition de son être, du besoin viscéral qui l'a fait avancer toute sa vie. S'il y a une chose que la maladie n'a pas changée chez lui, c'est bien cette soif de communiquer, de discuter pendant des heures. Or, quand vient le temps de parler de lui-même, Raymond Gravel se transforme en homme de peu de mots. Comme si ce n'était pas important. Comme s'il n'en valait pas la peine. Je me suis souvent demandé en l'écoutant ce qu'il serait devenu si l'homme était né une génération plus tard. Ses sermons en chaire auraient peut-être pris une autre forme. Politicien de carrière, homme de scène, motivateur, ou même journaliste pour la télévision : n'importe quoi qui lui aurait permis de capter l'attention des foules. Après tout, si tant de gens l'écoutent, c'est peut-être parce qu'il a quelque chose d'intéressant à raconter. " -- 4e de couv.
