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..
