Uh, not to quibble or anything, but is that something he should say to his mother? It sounds a bit detached to me.

If he had said something like "Mama." Or, "Mother." it would sound more affectionate.

The rest of it sounded fascinating, though. I really liked it.

Excellent! I just read something today (I forget where) that tradition holds that Jesus arose from the Dead at 3AM on Easter Sunday and first appeared to Mary; this is why she wasn’t with the other women later that morning.

I can easily see the above scene happening at that 3AM...

3 days in the Temple, 3 days in the Tomb.
You know, I never made that connection before!
Happy writing.

There is absolutely nothing disrespectful in this story.
"When Jesus saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing near,
He said to His mother, 'Woman, behold, your son!' Then He said to the
disciple, 'Behold, your mother!' " (John 19: 26-27, Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition)

"Woman...make me a sandwich."
It just feels like a 'demanding' tone of voice.
Why not Mother or Daughter if it is God speaking?
Or is it the Angel Gabriel? Why not Miss or Madam?
A bit of respect for the barer of Christ.
