Saint Dismas, The Good Thief

Christ and the Thief, Nikolai Ge

“And Pilate, after sentence, ordered a title to be written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin letters, according to what the Jews  said: This is the King of the Jews . And one of the robbers who was hanged, by name Gestas, said to Him: If you are the Christ , free yourself and us. And Dismas answering, rebuked him, saying: Do you not even fear God, who art in this condemnation? For we justly and deservedly have received those things which we endure; but He has done no evil. And he kept saying to Jesus: Remember me, Lord, in Your kingdom. And Jesus said to him: Verily I say unto you, that today shall you be with me in paradise.”
