THE MESSAGE OF CHRIST

The MESSAGE of DOZULÉ (following)

8 th APPARITION

Tuesday, June 12th 1973 at 7.00 p.m. in the Chapel

Madeleine finished the recitation of the rosary with the Sisters and the priest. She felt a breeze brush her cheek, thought it was a draught but, intrigued, asked the priest if he too had felt this breeze. After his reply to the negative, the light "of dazzling beauty", appeared where the Tabernacle was. Jesus appeared, His hands extended in welcome and said :

"Be so kind as to come here."
(Madeleine went up to Him.)

"Say this aloud : "
(He dictated it slowly, word by word :)

"I am the First and the Last and the Living One, and All that has been given you : I am Love, Peace, Joy, Resurrection and Life. Kiss the people present here for love and out of charity for your neighbour."
"Be so kind as to repeat this :
"Attendite quod in aure auditis, praedicate super tecta. Per te, Magdalena, civitas Dozulea decorabitur per Sanctam Crucem et aedificat Sanctuarium Domino in monte ejus. Terribilis est locus iste."
(Translation : Listen ! What you hear in your ear, proclaim it from the housetops. Through you, Madeleine, the city of Dozulé will be adorned by the Holy Cross, and it will build a sanctuary to the Lord on His hill. How awesome is this place !)

"Kiss the ground three times in penitence for Iniquity."

Jesus was very sad. He looked for a long time at the three persons present and said :

"Say this aloud to the persons who are saying the rosary with you : " (the two Sisters and the priest)
"Make haste to tell the world what you have seen and heard in My Name. Order the Bishop to announce My Law, so that the Glorious Cross may be raised and the Sanctuary of Reconciliation be built on the precise spot where Madeleine has seen it six times, then all come to it in procession."

Then Jesus lifted up His arms, the hands turned towards Madeleine, eyes fixed on the distance ; He said :

"When this Cross is raised up on earth, I shall draw everything to Me."

Then he lowered His hands and arms in an attitude of welcome and said :

"Be so kind as to come here each First Friday : I will visit you until the erection of the Glorious Cross."

Madeleine worshipped Him for a moment, then rising a little, He disappeared.

9th APPARITION

Friday, July 6th 1973 at 7.05 p.m.

In the Chapel, Jesus appeared in place of the Tabernacle. His hands stretched out to Madeleine in welcome. He smiled for a long time at her, with a very sweet smile, and a look of marvellous kindness. He raised His right hand towards her, placed the other on His breast and said :

"Be so kind as to repeat this :
"Misit Dominus manum suam et dixit mihi : "Spiritus Domini docebit vos quaecumque dixero vobis."
(Translation : " The Lord stretched out His hand and said to me : The Spirit of the Lord will teach you everything I have said to you.")

"Go and tell the Bishop everything I have dictated, and the Lord's servant will have spoken a language which is foreign to her."

"But, Lord", said Madeleine, "I don't remember it any more !"

"Remember this word of Mine : You will witness in my Name, and you will not need to practise what you have to say, for I shall be with you."

Then Jesus desappeared.

First Friday of August 1973

Jesus did not come.
Madeleine left the Chapel weeping, could not sleep and thought she had not done what Jesus asked of her - to go to the Bishop.
She went a few days later, with the priest and Sister B., hesitant and anxious. Once there, the Holy Spirit brought everything back to mind and the Bishop said : "If this comes from God it will persist."
She was happy to have accomplished what Jesus asked of her, and in the car going back to Dozulé, there was great joy.

"Without You, Holy Spirit, nothing exists, nothing is possible. We are only darkness. But when one possesses You : all is joy, all is love, all is possible."

10th APPARITION

Friday September 7th 1973 at 7.00 p.m.

In the Chapel the light appeared in the place of the Blessed Sacrament, then Jesus, smiling with such a sweet smile.

"Make a genuflection and greet Him... Rejoice, Jesus of Nazareth, the Risen Son of Man is there, in front of me, surrounded with light... His hands and His countenance shine like the Sun, His look is all love and kindness... and this is what the First and the Last and the Living One says to all of you who are witnesses :

"Rejoice, rejoice without ceasing in the Lord. May your joy be known to all men. Rejoice as the Lord's servant present here overflows with joy in the light she discovers... Be humble, patient, charitable..."

(Then looking more serious :)

"Kiss the ground three times in penance for Iniquity."

Jesus looked so sad. He always looked at the people in the Chapel so sadly, as though He saw the world. Madeleine asked Him why, and He answered :

"I am sad because of the lack of faith in the world, because of all those who do not love my Father..."

(Then very slowly :)

"Say this aloud :
"Go everyone in procession to the exact spot where the Lord's servant saw the Glorious Cross, and every day say this HUMBLE PRAYER, followed by a decade of the rosary."
(One "Our Father" and ten "Hail Marys") Then Jesus said :

"Say the whole rosary, you and the people who say it with you."

Dictated very slowly, gravely and firmly :

- Mercy, my God, on those who blaspheme You : forgive them, they know not what they do.
- Mercy, my God, for the scandal in the world : deliver them from the spirit of Satan.
- Mercy, my God, on those who run away from You : give them appreciation for the Holy Eucharist.
- Mercy, my God, on 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, see, I am coming... Amen. Come, Lord Jesus."

Madeleine was in tears. Jesus looked at her sadly while she recited the rosary. After it, He said :

"Lord, pour out on the whole world the treasures of Your infinite Mercy."
"Be so kind as to repeat this :
"Vos amici mei estis, si feceritis quae Ego praecipio vobis... Each time that you bear witness in my Name, be so good as to repeat this."

Madeleine said : "Lord, I shall do as You will."

(Translation : "You are My friends, if you do what I command you.")

11th APPARITION

Friday October 5th 1973 at 7.00 p.m.

In the Chapel, Jesus took the place of the Blessed Sacrament. There was neither altar nor monstrance. The Lord appeared quite near to Madeleine, slightly raised, His feet resting on a flat stone with some pebbles beside it. His right foot a little forward, uncovered nearly to the ankle, the left foot mostly hidden by the robe, which was held in by a cord. The neckline, which was round and gathered, revealed the neck, the sleeves were rather wide like an alb, the robe was all in one. His hair, rather long, fell to His shoulders, His hands were full of light, like His countenance, which was marvellous, everything else was white. His look was love and kindness shining like the sun.

("I underline this phrase, I have it from Jesus," wrote Madeleine).

He smiled at her, His hands stretched out in welcome. Madeleine genuflected, bowed to Him, then knelt down and made the sign of the Cross. ("I do it automatically, without Him asking me to : doubtless it is He who makes me do it : I have to do it," explained Madeleine.)

He stayed some moments without speaking. She marvelled at this vision, and He said :

"Tell the people here to say with you the prayer I have taught them, followed by a decade of the rosary :

- Mercy, my God, on those who blaspheme You : forgive them, they know not what they do.
- Mercy, my God, for the scandal of the world : deliver them from the spirit of Satan,
- Mercy, my God, on those who run away from You : give them appreciation for the Holy Eucharist.
He who does the will of my Father and who eats this Bread will live for ever in this Light...
- Mercy, my God, on 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, see, I am coming... Amen. Come, Lord Jesus."

Jesus quietly recited the decade of the rosary with Madeleine, who waited for each Hail Mary, and who wrote : "It was so moving to say the rosary with Jesus, that I had never said it before so slowly." Then Jesus said :

"Lord, pour out on the whole world the treasures of Your infinite Mercy."

Madeleine observed : "I believe I did not repeat this phrase so absorbed was I by the wonderful presence of Jesus. I could stay endlessly admiring Him without saying anything, or asking for anything ; besides, there is nothing to ask ; I neither hear nor move, and when Jesus is there, I am no longer on this earth. I neither see nor think of anything round me... no words can explain what I feel... one has the impression that in this clear light one could see to the depths of the universe or of eternity.
I can assure anyone who doubts, that there is certainly another world than the one we see, and the one we do not see is the more marvellous."

Jesus added :

"Say this aloud :
"The Glorious Cross,"
(Here He looked round at those present) "raised on the high ground, must be comparable to the city of Jerusalem by its vertical dimension. Its arms must stretch from East to West. It should be all lit up..."(And with a grave expression) "Thus is the Sign of the Son of Man..."
"At a hundred metres from the site of the Glorious Cross in the direction of the right arm dig down, water will come out there. You will all come and wash as a sign of purification..."

Leaning towards Madeleine, without telling her to say it aloud :

"Always be joyful, don't bewail the general cataclysm of this generation, because all this must happen. But behold the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky. And now the time of the nations must be accomplished. All will beat their breasts. After the evangelisation of the whole world, then I shall return in glory."

He looked at Madeleine, smiled and disappeared.

12th APPARITION

Friday, November 2nd 1973 at 7.00 p.m.

In the Chapel, Jesus appeared with His hands open, lifted His arms in the form of a Cross, His head bent slightly towards the right as though He were about to be crucified ; there were no wounds - in fact I have never seen His wounds. He said :

"Dozulé will be, henceforth, a blessed and holy town... You are living in a time of supreme effort by Evil against Christ. Satan has been let out of his prison. He has taken possession of the whole earth."

Jesus always speaks to me very slowly. That day, His voice was very, very grave. I was very sad to see Him like that. Then He said to me :

"Gog and Magog, their number is incalculable. Whatever happens, do not worry. All will be thrown into the fire for eternity... Blessed are they who are captivated only by the Supreme God."

Then Jesus lowered His arms and hands and resumed his usual position, that is with His hands held out towards me, and He said :

"This message is for you :
"Blessed the one who is captivated only by the Supreme God, for My Father is only Goodness. He forgives the greatest sinner at the last moment of His life... Tell those who are dying repentant, that the greater the sin, the greater is My mercy. At the very moment when a soul leaves its body, it finds itself in this splendid Light. Tell them - Jesus' words."

Jesus smiled at her for a long while, left her a serious message for the Bishop, and told her something concerning herself personally... Then Jesus disappeared.

Friday December 7th 1973

Jesus did not come.
Madeleine waited a long time. At 7.45 p.m. she left the Chapel. She knows, however, that He is always there, present in our day to day living. She wrote : "My Jesus if you knew how I love you ! and He knows..."


13th APPARITION

Friday, January 4th 1974 at 4.15 p.m.

Madeleine, who came at about 2.00 p.m. to do some ironing at the Convent, first went to the Chapel to adore Jesus. She left and came back about 3.00 p.m., "as though something impelled me" ; she felt riveted to her place, inclined to stay ther indefinitely ; she heard 4.15 p.m. chime...

She was about to begin the last decade of the rosary, when she suddenly became blind, felt her heart pounding and cried out to the priest who, at that moment, was there with Sister M. "What's happening to me ? I can't see any more... I'm frightened !... what time is it ?... I want to go home."

She heard the priest come to her. He said later : "I came near her, and she certainly gave every sign of being blind ; she seemed to be quite lost in darkness, her eyes without light, her face wan, confused and panicky. I tried to reassure her, thinking that it was the first episode of a mystical phenomenon rather than an unexpected trial." "Just wait a few moments it will pass." I asked Sister M. to fetch Sister B. who came immediately."

However Madeleine was not reassured. She wrote later : "I said to myself : you can see that it's not he who is in my place ! I asked myself what would become of me, I thought of my family, my children... how miserable I felt. Jesus did tell me that I should suffer for sinners one day after a visit. He didn't tell me I would become blind. He told me what would happen to my body and how, particularly, I would suffer in spirit... what I said was out of fright...
I didn't think, either, that it came from Jesus, it wasn't the time, because before it was 7 o'clock in the evening when I saw Him.
Then in this terrible anguish, in the darkness, not only of sight but of spirit, joy flooded my being."

The priest said : "her eyes which were dull recovered their sparkle, her sorrow was transformed into an immense joy, and indescribable peace."

She wrote : "I imagine it's the same for someone suffering on his deathbed : when the soul leaves its body, it suffers no more, but suddenly finds itself in this gentleness, this spiritual light, it is transfigured with Jesus."
Then the light appeared as usual in place of the Blessed Sacrament, "still more beautiful, more shining, and purer than usual"... Madeleine, who was at the back of the Chapel thought : "I am in His hands, we are all in His hands, He is Master and does what He wills with us ; we must thank Him for all the graces He gives us, if we can see, hear, walk, if we have health and are happy, it is thanks to Him, and Him alone. He can take all that from us in an instant..."

And Jesus appeared, His right hand on his Heart, the left hanging down the side of His body. He smiled at her and said :

"Why are you afraid ? Why do you doubt ? I am here..."

She answered : "Lord, I was afraid because I thought I was going blind...".
He said :
"Tell them that everyone on earth is like that - in darkness."
And then without telling her to say it aloud :

"Kiss the ground three times in penance for the lack of Faith." which she did.
Then Jesus, with a slow gesture, took His hand from His Heart, held it out to her making a sign for her to come nearer and at the same time He said :

"Come up here and greet Me."

Madeleine went on her knees very near Him and bowed as He taught her. He said, with His hand on His Heart :

"Be so kind as to repeat this :
"Ecce Dominus noster cum virtute veniet et illuminabit oculos servorum Suorum. Laetamini, laetamini in Domino, laetamini cum Magdalena. Paratum cor ejus : "Speravi in Domino, ut se simplicitas prodit amabilis."
(Translation : "See Our Lord will come with power and will enlighten the eyes of His servants. Rejoice, rejoice in the Lord, rejoice with Madeleine. Her heart is ready : "I have hoped in the Lord, so that a loving simplicity may reflect Him.")

Then without telling her to repeat it aloud :

"Every time you return to your place after each Communion, put your left hand on your heart, and your right hand across it."

While He explained it, Jesus made the gesture ... He smiled at her for a few instants and disappeared.

First Friday, February 1974

Jesus did not appear.

14th APPARITION

March 1st 1974 from 3.30 to 3.40 p.m.

The priest, three Sisters, and four ladies were present in the Chapel. "Here is the Light", said Madeleine. Jesus appeared as usual in the same place as though to welcome Madeleine. He smiled at her for a few moments, He raised His eyes to heaven, with a grave and faraway look. He said :

"Be so good as to repeat this :"

He raised His arms in a cross, a little bit higher, and said very slowly, each phrase being repeated by Madeleine :

"Ecce cujus imperti Nomen est in aeternum. Quae videt Me, videt et Patrem Meum, Magdalena !" "Annuntiate virtutes ejus qui vos de tenebris vocabit in admirabile Lumen Suum. Nolite timere, Deum benedicite, et cantate Illi."
(Translation : "Behold Him whose Name is of eternal Reign. Who sees Me sees My Father. Madeleine ! Announce the marvels of Him who has called you from darkness into His admirable Light. Don't be afraid, bless the Lord and sing to Him")

Jesus continued :

"I am the Light of the world, and the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not understand Me."
"Penance, penance, penance ; kiss the ground three times in penitence for the lack of faith in the world."

Then He assumed His usual position :

"Today Jesus of Nazareth, the Risen Son of Man, is visiting me for the eighth time. His hands, His face shine like the sun, His clothes are brilliantly white, His look is Love and Kindness. Love your neighbour as I love you ; your look should be love and kindness for each one of you. Kiss someone present with love and charity."

Madeleine kissed the first person there, it was Sister M. de l'A., superior general of B. Then Jesus added :

"This gesture is a sign of love and reconciliation for the whole world. Rejoice, Mary, said the Archangel Gabriel at the Conception of the Son of Man."

Then in a very grave voice :

"Truly I say to you, today it is the same. Rejoice, because the time is near when the Son of Man will come back in glory. Rejoice, rejoice in the Lord without ceasing, may your joy be known to all men because of the words you have just heard, because of My Name."

Then some moments after :

"Let each of you, in the silence of your heart, ask God for the grace you desire ; this very day it will be granted you."

Madeleine stayed some moments in silence. Then she listened to the very serious words Jesus said to her. She did not dare to repeat them because of their gravity ; she confided them to the priest on leaving the Chapel. In the same attitude, Jesus went on :

"Tell the Church that she must renew her message of PEACE to the whole world, because the hour is grave. Satan is directing the world, he seduces minds, makes them capable of destroying humanity in a few moments. If humanity does not resist him, I shall give him leave to act, and it will be a catastrophe, such as has not been since the Deluge, and this will be before the end of the century. All those who come to repent at the foot of the Glorious Cross will be saved . Satan will be destroyed ; thereafter it will be only Peace and Joy."

Then He disappeared.

Madeleine quits form the Chapel...
