Mary,Miriam by her hebrew name, Jesus' mum,her well known claim to fame; A young maiden of reticence and tact, Her tale ,she sang out ,in Magnificat; Fled to Egypt to save her son, Arranged his bar mtizvah, & circumcision done; Heard & saw many things from the start, Keeping them secret in her heart; Remembered by her son ,in her greatest loss, By these words, uttered from the cross. WOMAN ! BEHOLD ,YOUR SON !

A great poem on Mary, Brian, that last line seems heartless, but Lord Jesus referred to her as 'woman' in the miracle at Cana of Galilee too, reminding her of His far greater relationship with God, the Father:)

Yes Jo,sometime things are lost in translation.Also of course his words to John clarified it
