I hope that somebody who is more Gospel-literate than I,
will come up with the quotes,
but this is indeed from scripture.

It is from the Passion, but I don't know
which Apostle/ Gospel book it comes from.
That particular book of the Gospel
asserts that Mary the mother of Salome,
and Mary out of whom Jesus had cast seven devils,
were with the mother Mary at Calvary,
keeping vigil by the cross.

For obvious reasons Mary the Virgin Mother does most of the talking
amongst the women,
but there is a verse at the very very end --

two women speak to each other.
What shall we do with his body?
the other replies,
But we don't even have his bones.
