St. Dismas is known as the Good Thief or the Penitent Thief in Christian tradition. He is one of the two criminals crucified alongside Jesus Christ, specifically mentioned in the Gospel of Luke. Unlike the other criminal who mocked Jesus, Dismas recognized Jesus’ innocence and asked to be remembered when Jesus came into His kingdom. Jesus responded, “Truly, I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43).

St. Dismas is considered a saint in the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and several other Christian denominations. His feast day is celebrated on March 25 in the Roman Catholic Church and on various other dates in other traditions. St. Dismas is often invoked as a patron saint of prisoners, repentant thieves, and death row inmates.
