To Die Like St. Dismas ...

I do hope that when my time comes I can be like St. Dismas ... the penitent criminal who was crucified with Jesus.  He faced his wrongdoings, expressed them, and then asked Jesus for mercy.  I pray that God will grace me with the clarity to see my yet-to-be-confessed sins and faults in life and the humility to acknowledge them.  I hope I will then make any reparation that would please God and give peace or relief to others. Yes, I really would like a holy death ... like St. Dismas's.

The other (Dismas), however, rebuking him, said in reply, 
"Have you no fear of God?  We have been condemned justly."
