The red coins of Redemption

A dying man asked a dying man for eternal life.
A man without possessions asked a poor man for a Kingdom. 
A thief at the door of death asked to die like a thief and steal Paradise.
One would have thought a saint would have been the first soul
purchased over the counter of Calvary by the red coins of Redemption.

But in the Divine plan it was a thief
who was the escort of the King of kings 
into Paradise.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
