In all four Gospels there are men and women who we have come to know well by name. But there are others whose part in that story appears almost accidental-they simply happened to be there at the time. Here Don Cormac tries to identify these unnamed people and to express a little of what they may have felt as they found themselves, unasked and confused, in the greatest story ever recorded. If you were a waiter at the wedding where Jesus turned water into wine, what would your reaction be? How would you feel if you were caught up in the crowd following Jesus to the cross? Reading these stories will put you in their shoes.
