How could they understand the resilience she had to unearth in order not to rush and tear the eyes of the murderers with Her bare hands? But they aren’t interested in what She thinks or how She feels they just want their opinions verified Mary starts speaking to us instead going back to the last few months before the death of Her child before

Let me tell you if they would have nailed me to a cross when I was about 30 years old my mom would have had way than 20K words to say about it And this book? It's the only part of the New Testament with the exception of Revelation that I've ever read The Old Testament? I've read that backwards Hebrew and forwards Yinglish complete with footnotes Here we get Mary kvetchy as anything but also ice cold sane I'd be kvetchy too if my son were 30 years old and not marriedOK enough blasphemy The Testimony of Mary is as serious as a heart attack Colm Toibin is an apostate but he is in my view a respectful one He imagines what the mother of Jesus would witness and think around the time of Jesus' death It's a very plausible view except that the Mary giving testimony here is definitely not
