Surely it was her first time to Golgotha in an execution.. I've often thought that as Mary stood with her Son, she interceded already. Her eyes could not have failed to take in both Dismas and Gestas, and she'd have had pity on them. Gestas clung to his anger. I think Dismas, however, looked at Mary, and that she nodded, and Dismas let go and let God.


Thank you for this truly beautiful reflection, deacon dan. The model of Mary's strength in overwhelming grief helps us so much during the hard times.
