Cross of Dozulé
The Glorious Cross of Dozulé is a postulated 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 lengths. It is called Glorious Cross, in order to distinguish it from the Cross of Love of Dozulé, realized on a scale of 1/100 on that of the Glorious One, that is 7.38m high with arms 1.23m long.
According to the "Movement of Love" and other believers, the Catholic Church should have erected the Glorious Cross, which it did not. Crosses of Love have been erected by faithful Catholic in thousands of places in many countries of the world and in particular in France, Italy, Mexico and Argentina. A cross was also erected by Conchiglia-Movement of Love Saint Juan Diego on the location where the Virgin Mary is believed to have appeared to Saint Juan Diego. The Cross with the dimensions of 7.38m x 1.23m was raised with the approval and blessing of the Archbishop and several priests, according to the followers of the movement. Many of these Crosses of Love have been erected with the approval of the bishops, rectors of sanctuaries, Orthodox patriarchs and Protestant pastors. However, there have been cases where bishops have expressively prohibited them and have asked to remove them.
Dozulé is a small town in Normandy, in France, located about 25 km from Lisieux. Between 1972 and 1978 Jesus is said to have appeared there 49 times to Madeleine Aumont, a mother of five children, in the presence of her parish priest the Abate L’Horset and other faithful people, and is believed to have been dictating 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. The messages are seen as an annunciation of the return of Christ. The Glorious Cross is seen as a sign of it. The followers of the messages of Dozulé believe that they are the continuation of the Secret of Fatima and that they ask, for the conversion of humanity to avoid a material and spiritual catastrophe.
The Prayer of Dozulé
The followers believe that Jesus revealed to Madeleine Aumont that the faithful are to recite this prayer every day, beginning with the Sign of the Cross:
Jesus of Nazareth has triumphed over death. His Reign is eternal. He is coming to conquer the world and time. Mercy my God, for those who blaspheme You, forgive them, for they do not know what they do. Mercy my God, for the scandal in the world, deliver them from the spirit of satan. Mercy my God, for those who run away from You, give them the appreciation for the Holy Eucharist. Mercy my God, for those who will come repentant to the Glorious Cross, may they find there Peace and Joy in God our Saviour. Mercy my God, so that Your Kingdom may come, but save souls, there is still time, for the time is drawing near, And Behold, I am coming. Amen. Come Lord Jesus! 1 Our Father and 10 Hail Mary. Lord, pour out on the whole world the treasures of Your infinite mercy.
The Glorious Cross of Dozule ( in Saskatoon )
I have been interested in having a Glorious Cross in our area for quite some time. I know there is one in Ponteix, Sask. But that is a 4 hour drive from here.
This year ( 2010) has been a very difficult year for me. I have been very sick. On many prescriptions of antibiotics ( 7) with no relief. I ended up in hospital, very dehydrated with a temperature of 103.7, worrying about whether my organs would shut down...I am not complaining because the Lord had to allow me to be that sick so that in desperation I would make a deal with Him...He knows all.
I decided to put my trust in Our Lord. I told Him that if I could possibly get off the medication that I would do something big for Him, that I would build a Glorious Cross in my yard. You must understand that this is not a simple or cheap thing to do. Also my husband is not Catholic and I am sure I don't have to explain the complications of this endeavor.
My prayer was said on a Thursday...On the Saturday I checked and I was better, so much so that I started thinking that I would have to build that Cross after all.
Much to my surprise, my husband said that I had to keep my promise and that we would build the Cross.
I wanted it finished before September, I had thought on Sept. 8th but for sure on the 14th, so that it could be blessed on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross.
Everything turned out better then I expected, at the end of August the Cross was up and on the 14th, we had a great celebration. Father Denis Phaneuf celebrated Holy Mass and he blessed the Glorious Cross with a large group of people in attendance.
I must say I love this Cross.
Here are some pictures

It's very solid, made out of steel.
