Jun 7 - “Good Thief” © icon by Br. Robert Lentz, OFM.

"Few were the words that the Thief uttered upon the cross, yet great was the faith that he showed.  In one moment he was saved:  he opened the gates of Paradise and was the first to enter in.  O Lord, who hast accepted his repentance, glory to Thee."
(Byzantine liturgy for Good Friday, Antiphon Fourteen.)
