Default Does this statement agree with the doctrine of purgatory?

In luke 23:43. Jesus said to one of the thieves crucified with him " I promise you that today you will be with me in paradise" . How does this statement agree with the churches' teaching
about purgatory?

Baltimore Catechism:
Quote:
Question: What is Purgatory?

Answer:Purgatory is a state in which those suffer for a time who die guilty of venial sins, or without having satisfied for the punishment due to their sins.
Note the part I underlined. The Church doesn't say that everyone goes through Purgatory. There are exceptions. In the case of the "good thief" we can surmise that he suffered enough temporal punishment due his sins.
