Yes, I've heard that he was the first canonized saint, as Jesus assured him he would be in heaven.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Take time to Give it is too short a day to be selfish.. Take time to DO CHARITY..

'The Good Thief'
In the fourth century, an apocryphal book called the "Acts of Pilate" gave a purported account of the trial, death and resurrection of Christ as seen through the eyes of Pilate.

The book drew heavily on the four Gospels and added many details.

It is in the Acts of Pilate that the "good thief' is given the name Dismas (sometimes spelled Dysmas) - from a Greek word meaning "dying" It is another example of how legendary writings imaginatively supply details that aren't given in the authentic texts. Over time, Dismas was popularly looked upon as a saint. Many parishes are named after
him.

The feast of St. Dismas is celebrated March 25. Many consider him the first canonized saint.
