He is then seen on various France Télévisions stages, invited in particular by Patrick Poivre d'Arvor and Mireille Dumas, or even on BFM TV[8] and on Grand Journal of Canal+, the day after the election of Pope Francis, whom he had met at length in Buenos Aires, fourteen years earlier.

He traveled, most often by hitchhiking, in more than eighty countries, including: India, Nepal, Iran, Afghanistan, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Brazil, Guyana, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Guatemala, Cuba, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Soviet Union, Iceland, Great Britain, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Austria, United States, Canada, Holy Land, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritania, Greece, Turkey, South Africa, Zaire, Senegal, Mali, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, China, Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea and Japan.

Asked for more than thirty years to give conferences, lead retreats and meetings[9], accompany pilgrimages, participate in interreligious dialogue, in France and outside France, he enthusiastically shares his faith in a God of Love in the four corners of the planet: France[10], Mauritius, Rodrigues Island, Réunion, Seychelles, Tahiti, New Caledonia, Marquesas Islands, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Mauritania, Morocco (in particular: Fez Music Festival), Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, United States, Quebec, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, England, Czech Republic, Croatia and the Holy Land (pilgrimages)[11][12].

He was often invited to Radio Notre-Dame on the program Écoute dans la nuit by its host Chantal Bally, in which he was interviewed by listeners and where he dealt with a subject determined by mutual agreement between them.
