The Good Thief, by Msgr. Gaume

The good thief Dismas is the first human being Christ canonized as a saint of the Church he founded upon earth, sealing it by taking him to Paradise the day they both died. 
This is a singular event in the history of Christ’s ministry on earth, a singular event in human history, and a singular event in the conversion of criminals, for there is no more powerful intercessory saint than Saint Dismas.
