Brother Theophyle is talking to a robin. He says, “A very long time ago, when I was a young boy, I shot and killed a robin with a BB gun.”

The robin replies, “I remember.”

In the next panel, Theophyle asks Robin, “Can you forgive me?”

Robin replies, “What a silly question. Of course, I can forgive you. The question is, can you forgive yourself?”

At that, a worm, whom the robin is yanking out of the soil, presumably to eat it, observes, “Easy for you to say.”
