Ligue de la Contre-Réforme Catholique
|Motto||Il est Ressuscite!|
|Founder||Father Georges de Nantes|
Ligue de la Contre-Réforme Catholique (English: League for Catholic Counter-Reformation) is a Catholic society in France which emerged in 1967 to oppose the heresies of ecumenism and modernism. The organisation was founded by the Carmelite priest Fr. Georges de Nantes, three years before another Frenchman, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre founded the Society of St. Pius X. Because of their criticism of the Second Vatican Council and the Vatican II Church, they have been attacked by Freemasonry and Jewry.
The organisation is particularly notable for it's defence of the Shroud of Turin as a genuine relic of Jesus Christ. Brother Bruno Bonnet-Eymard, director of the CRC, is one of the leading scholars on the subject. The society is also active in Quebec and Belgium. It has taken a patriotic stance in regards to French culture and Father Georges in his youth was a supporter of Philippe Pétain. The Masonic controlled governments of France and Belgium have tried to portray the CRC as a "cult" to demonise them.
