Our Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King, Luke 23:35-43
The Good Thief is one who is full of hope of getting into heaven.
Whatever we have done in the past Jesus is our hope and he is holding out his hand from the Cross to welcome all who call on him.
Maybe in our unworthiness Jesus makes us worthy, which is a good image for men as they discern their vocation. Jesus is calling us and all we need to do is to respond generously to his invitation like the Good Thief.
“Remember me when you come into your kingdom.”
Kind regards and God bless
