ONE of the most touching incidents narrated in Sacred Scripture is that which describes the manner in which our divine Savior rendered assistance to a man on his deathbed. The man was a criminal, the deathbed was a cross, the time was the afternoon of the first Good Friday. On Calvary's heights our blessed Lord was breathing forth His soul in agony. To the right and left of the cross on which He hung were set up two other crosses, bearing two robbers who were making atonement by their lives for their many deeds of injustice and violence. Suddenly the thief on the right, touched with contrition, addressed the dying Redeemer imploringly: "Lord, remember me when You shall come into Your kingdom." And from the compassionate heart of Christ came the answer: "Amen, I say to you, this day you shall be with Me in paradise" (Luke 23: 42-43). Thus did the Son of God grant the grace of a happy death even to a poor outcast from society.
