A l’île Maurice, le nom du P. Laval est vénéré par tous depuis plus d’un siècle à l’égal de celui des plus grands saints. Pourtant, cet ancien médecin normand, devenu prêtre et missionnaire, a tout fait pour ne pas attirer l’attention sur lui-même, pour se faire oublier. Ses lettres à ses supérieurs, à sa famille ou à ses amis, sont dénuées de toute recherche d’élégance ou de pittoresque; elles permettent cependant de deviner quelque chose de la vie spirituelle intense qui animait et soutenait son apostolat. Chez lui, comme chez le P. Libermann, qui fut son premier supérieur religieux, c’est cette vie intérieure qui est le secret du rayonnement de sa vie. Les extraits de ses lettres, que nous publions à l’occasion de sa béatification, aideront à découvrir un peu de l’âme du P. Laval, et surtout son immense amour pour les pauvres

Laval began his career as a socialist, but over time drifted far to the right.
After the liberation of France in 1944, Laval was arrested by the French government under General Charles de Gaulle. Laval was born 28 June 1883 at Châteldon, Puy-de-Dôme, in the northern part of Auvergne. Laval was educated at the village school in Châteldon. Laval joined the Socialists in 1903, when he was living in Saint-Étienne, 62 km southwest of Lyon. I was never a very orthodox socialist », he said in 1945, « by which I mean that I was never much of a Marxist. Laval returned to Paris in 1907 at the age of 24. He was called up for military service and, after serving in the ranks, was discharged for varicose veins.
During this period, Laval became familiar with the left-wing doctrines of Georges Sorel and Hubert Lagardelle. In 1909, he turned to the law. Shortly after becoming a member of the Paris bar, he married the daughter of Dr Joseph Claussat and set up a home in Paris with his new wife. Their only child, a daughter Josée, was born in 1911. The years before the First World War were characterised by labour unrest, and Laval defended strikers, trade unionists, and left-wing agitators against government attempts to prosecute them.
I am a comrade among comrades, a worker among workers. I am not one of those lawyers who are mindful of their bourgeois origin even when attempting to deny it. I am not one of those high-brow attorneys who engage in academic controversies and pose as intellectuals. I am proud to be what I am.
A lawyer in the service of manual laborers who are my comrades, a worker like them, I am their brother. Comrades, I am a manual lawyer. In April 1914, as fear of war swept the nation, the Socialists and Radicals geared up their electoral campaign in defence of peace. Laval briefly served in the army before being released for varicose veins. He was listed in the Carnet B, a compilation of potentially subversive elements who might hinder mobilisation.
With France’s resources geared for war, goods were scarce or overpriced. On 30 January 1917, in the National Assembly Laval called upon the Supply Minister Édouard Herriot to deal with the inadequate coal supply in Paris. When Herriot said, « If I could, I would unload the barges myself », Laval retorted « Do not add ridicule to ineptitude ». Laval scorned the conduct of the war and the poor supply of troops in the field. When mutinies broke out after General Robert Nivelle’s offensive of April 1917 at Chemin des Dames, he spoke in defence of the mutineers. The hope of peace in spring 1917 was overwhelmed by discovery of traitors, some real, some imagined, as with Malvy who became a suspect because he had refused to arrest Frenchmen on the Carnet B.
