Men and women are companions of Jesus on his road from the Jordan river to the desert, from Galilee to the cross: the Baptist, the fishers, the sick, the sinners, the Syrian mother, the anxious father, the children, the blind man, the doubting disciples. In Jerusalem, the city of the law, of the temple, of the judgment, of death, other silent friends are present and active. Out of every limit of chronology or biography they all are an example of humanity searching grace and justice. They are a parable or a mirror reflecting every human being on the common road of life.
