Therese Neumann - Walty - 12-16-2009

I've just discovered and started reading about her.  Does anyone have any opinions as to the validity of her visions, stigmata, inedia, etc.?


Re: Therese Neumann - Walty - 12-18-2009

Really?  No takers. Someone here has to know something about her. She was supposedly a 20th century German mystic.  I happened upon this picture and, needless to say, I was pretty intrigued.

I just read the wiki page on her. Pretty interesting. Why is she bleeding from her eyes though?

I remember a book about her, but I was like 10...Sounded legit to me...

Yeah, that's one of the things I didn't understand. The picture is so intense too and it seems like such a contrast from the relatively benign and shy pictures of St. Pio's stigmata.

Her story seems so compelling but the Church hasn't made any announcement about her so I was wondering what other people thought.

I don't know why but seeing pictures of those with the stigmata or bleeding statues or whatever always gives me a weird feeling. This one is no exception.

Her cause for beatification has been recently opened.  I believe she is an authentic Catholic mystic, as did the many thousands who witnessed her stigmata..
