The Good Thief

One thief, releasing his spirit, cursed the Son of God: “If you are the Christ, save yourself and us.” The other thief prayed to the Lord: “Remember me, O Lord, when you come into your kingdom!”

The torments of crucifixion killed both the body and the soul of one thief, whereas the sufferings killed the body but saved the soul of the other.

The Cross of Christ was destruction for one of the thieves, but salvation for the other.
