The apparitions and the Glorious Cross[edit]

The current Cross of Dozulé in the place of its famous first apparition to Madeleine Aumount in 1972.

Between 1972 and 1978, Jesus Christ is said to have appeared 49 times in Dozulé to Madeleine Aumont,[1][2] a mother of five children, in the presence of her parish priest Victor L’Horset and other faithful people, and is believed to have dictated a series of messages, containing teachings and of warnings for all people, according to those who believe in them. Among them is the daily «Prayer of Dozulé».[3] The messages are seen as an annunciation of the return of Christ. The construction of the «Glorious Cross», an illuminated Catholic cross coloured white and blue, 738m tall with arms 123m long, which means with an exact proportion of a ratio of 3 between the vertical and horizontal length, is seen as a sign of it. The followers of the messages of Dozulé believe also that they are the continuation of the Three Secrets of Fátima and that they ask, for the conversion of humanity to avoid a material and spiritual catastrophe.

International relations[edit]

Dozulé is twinned with Leonard Stanley, a village in Gloucestershire, in the United Kingdom.
