Tears and Saints
As to the face-avoidance thing. 

1. These were religious who decided to offer their entire lives to God. They didn't live in the world where it's universally expected to look people in the eyes.

2. Perhaps these people had temptations of lust and so felt that looking in someone's face was a near occasion of sin. "If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out."

There is more than one kind of sanctity. Think of St. Joseph, he was an ordinary man with an ordinary job. He didn't live in a cave and eat locusts, he didnt sleep on a bed of spikes. He was an ordinary man.
Surréxit Dóminus vere, Alleluia!
