    A (but 'says his prayers'.

    And any, depending on context:

    a) I need to make a call, but Mom's on the phone. I need to use the phone after Mom's call to Mary.

    b) Mom's calling to Mary across the street, but there's so much traffic that Mary can't hear.

    c) Mom says she's going to talk to everyone concerned. After Mom's talk to Mary she'll be seeing Rebecca and Jim.

    d) Mom's talking to Mary at the moment; next is Rebecca.

    D is probably the most likely sort of context, but they're all possible.

    b
