I’ve heard of it, I think I may have it.
I don’t think having the gift maks you better than someone however, and I can see how there’d be a pride coming with it. It’s also important to never fall into sentamentalism, where you start to expect and depend on being emotionally moved in some way. But I’ve found it is a source of healing and realization for me, where, when I cry, it’s almost always when I’m alone (sometimes in the Church, sometimes at Mass)
God knows how each of us are, and He gives us gifts accordingly. He knows I’m a passionate person, and will sometimes get very down and sometimes very up, and so the tears (while not a constant thing, though usually a surprise) remind me that God is with me in all of it.
It’s a big mystery to me though. All I know is, I give my emotions to God when it happens. Emotions should be rightly ordered like anything, and when they are, hoo boy you’d be amazed at much happier you can be. A deep peace comes from giving God control of your emotions He knows better how I feel then even I do, so I try to trust Him.
Don’t know if that helps?
Tears can also be a manifestation of God’s love to someone in the beginning of their spiritual journey, as a consolation from God. But as a person matures spiritually, we’re to depend less and less on our emotions, and more and more on our faith, hope, and love.
