Liber Accusationis
ByAbbe George de NantesMarch 28, 1973

Introduction
The Liber Accusationis of Abbe George de Nantes was not translated into Englishuntil more recently. However, the fact that Abbe de Nantes accused Paul VI of heresywas well known in the 1970's. The story of the effort made to personally hand deliver acopy to Paul VI was circulated far and wide as were a few of the pieces of informationcontained in this document. One must remember that the 1970's were a time of confusionand a lack of information. And when a person would accuse the Conciliar Church of heresy, many excuses were immediately forth coming. For instance, someone addressedan official of the Conciliar Church on some heresies from Vatican II. The official merelyreplied that the book, Documents of Vatican II is not an official translation, whilerefusing to assist in finding the original Latin and making a translation of the importantsections brought into question.Below we will place several footnotes to indicate information that will beexpanded at the end of this document.Reprinted by the Vatican in Exile, December 27, 2011, Feast of Saint John theEvangelist.2
 
TO OUR HOLY FATHER POPE PAUL VI,BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND THE LAW OF THE CHURCHSOVEREIGN JUDGE OF ALL CHRIST'S FAITHFUL,WE PRESENT A COMPLAINTAGAINST OUR BROTHER IN THE FAITH, POPE PAUL VI,ON ACCOUNT OF HERESY, SCHISM, AND SCANDAL
Who am I, Your Holiness, to dare ask you to pass judgement upon yourself? I amnothing, and you are everything. Even the insignificant position that I had ten years ago – that of country parish priest – is mine no longer for, suspended by the Bishop of Troyessince the 25th August 1966, I have been deprived of the right to celebrate Mass or to preach, in the diocese in which I live – while you occupy the highest place of honour onthis earth and, in the Church, a position of such responsibility that no greater can beimagined and one, moreover, which enables you to receive help and guidance from theHoly Ghost in a way open to no other human being.How, then, dare I rise up against you?Do I perhaps seek reassurance in the example of those who, by virtue of their sanctity, and without consideration of rank or position, are able to exalt the humble and put down the mighty, fill the poor with riches and take away the possessions of the proud? Not even that, for not only am I a simple priest, lowest in the scale of thehierarchy, but also a sinner among the rest. In the course of history there have been greatSaints who have risen up against Popes guilty of untruth, but I do not claim either  personal merit or any mystical enlightenment to justify the reproach I bring against you. No, I tremble rather when I recall the words written about you by Cardinal Journet,describing you as "a living saint to whom we must raise our eyes with love" while myself he looks upon as lost beyond hope, unless, by the Grace of God, my eyes should beopened, before the end... (Quoted from a private letter to a religious, dated 21st January1973)There are, moreover, numerous supposed "revelations" current today which,claiming to come direct from Our Lord or His Blessed Mother, describe you as their childof predilection, the most beloved and worthy of Popes, who is undergoing a veritablemartyrdom at the hands of the evil men around you, as well as through all those agents of disorder and instigators of heresy who are ravaging the Church in spite of you. If all thiswere indeed true, what comfort it would give us to think that, in spite of the appearances,we were suffering
with
Your Holiness rather than as a direct result of your acts!If, in spite of all this, I am yet bold enough to rise up against you, before the entireChurch, it is because I draw the right to do so in that very Faith, Hope and Charity whichthe Holy Ghost bestows upon all the Faithful provided they do not themselves placeobstacles in the way through heresy, schism or apostasy. For 25 years I have been a priest, and given to the study of theology. But I claim no basis for my action other thanthe simple, elementary Faith of our Baptism which is common to all who belong to theCatholic and Roman Church. For, as you must be aware, my total and open opposition tothe present Reformation of the Church, which I reiterated at the conclusion of my Processat the Holy Office, against the formally expressed wish of Your Holiness, did not result3
