They probably got taken in with a sack of groceries or a bag of clothes.
Rather sad that they would forsake their Mother - the Blessed Virgin Mary!
You really miss the point.
All of your posts have something to do with Mary.
Maybe you might think about how the lady said she felt closer to JESUS and that was a comfort to her.
Giving Mary the proper place Jesus gave her--the care of John--is hardly forsaking her.
Elevating Mary beyond what Jesus did is some measure of forsaking Jesus.
I don't wonder which God deplores more.
JESUS, as Scripture makes clear,

Mary is not our mother. She was Jesus' mother and the mother of Jesus' half siblings, as Scripture makes clear.
Biblical Christians are happy to waltz along in 3/4 time, praying to God the Father in the name of God the Son and in the power of God the Holy Spirit. That's not good enough for non-Biblical Christians, who have an urge to move goddess the Mother into proximity to the Blessed Trinity. After all, if God won't answer your prayers, just ping His mother!
