March 25: Annunciations and Thieves, Part 2

I also found out that today is the day for a somewhat obscure reference in the Bible.  When Jesus was crucified, there were 2 thieves that were also crucified along each side of Him.  One supposedly got all snippy with Christ, causing the other thief to scold the first one and defend Jesus' honor.  He then asked Jesus to "remember me when you come into your kingdom."  Jesus, even in all the pain he was in nailed up to that cross, was still impressed by this man's repentant attitude, so He promised that thief that he'd be in heaven.  That thief was known as Saint Dismas.
