Rose and the Holy Face

In 1925, Rose arrived in Woonsocket, R.I., when the trouble broke out between Bishop Hickey and the Sentinellists.

At the end of 1926, the stigmata of the flagellation appeared; during Lent of 1927 those of the hands and feet; in November, 1927, the reception of Holy Communion without deglutition was noticed; in January 1928, the stigmata of the thorns made their appearance; during Lent of 1929, that of the heart; in the month of August 1929, her eyes shed tears of blood.

From that time on, each Friday, she represented the Holy Face. Towards the end of 1929 the crown of thorns was fully developed. In 1930 during July, the month of the Precious Blood, the Phenomenon of the Holy Face was repeated every day.

The 1st of August 1930, the stigmata disappeared, but the pains were felt with more intensity; still on the days she suffered the most, some of her former stigmata became purple and oozed a kind of serum.

When she died, on the 11th of May, 1936, we still could see one of the branches of the crown and the thorn stigmata.
