Face at the Cross:        Dismas-The Penitent Thief

Only found in the Gospel of Luke (23:39-43), this touching story reminds us that, when confronted with our own vulnerability and mortality, forgiveness and reconciliation are only a prayer away.

Luke 23:39-43, NRSV

39One of the criminals who were hanged there kept deriding him and saying, “Are you not the Messiah?  Save yourself and us!”  40But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?  41And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong.”  42Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”  43He replied, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
