The Penitent Thief

I lowered my eyes this morning as I began my prayers and saw this on the ground between my feet.

I immediately recalled these words from The Brothers Karamazov

“I was there when the Word who died on the cross rose up into heaven bearing on his bosom the soul of the penitent thief.”

Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov as it appears in
The Vitruvian Man’s Book of Hours

God speaks to us in many ways.  All we must do is be attentive and listen.
