One of the challenges of the St. Stephen's Stations was the parish's request for a "scriptural" Way of the Cross. In this station Jesus blesses the repentant thief, a scene involving multiple characters. The critical challenge was to incorporate the various characters of the incident within the triangular framework, without over-complicating the scene. Here, the repentant thief turns toward Christ in sorrow, while Christ's crucified hand extends to him the blessing of absolution.
