In 1973, Sister Agnes Katsuko, a nun of the Institute of the Handmaids of the Holy Eucharist in Akita, Japan, noticed that their statue of the Blessed Mother was weeping. The wooden statue in the convent at Akita was carved by a Buddhist woodcarver from an identical image of The Lady of All Nations. The statue wept human tears 101 times and bled type AB blood, along with other supernatural changes to the statue. Mary gave Sister Agnes messages of prayer, chastisement, and repentance. The phenomenon was witnessed by Bishop Ito and Father Teiji Yasuda. Bishop Ito gave his authorization for the veneration of the Holy Mother Mary in 1984.
