    No matter what, you can have our Lord in your heart.

    Wasn’t it Pius XII who said, “let me show you my little bird”?

    True forgiveness for all sins… The Pope even forgives the raven for killing his dove.

    Actually, the raven is getting rid of some of those pesky pigeons.

    If that is a raven and not a black bird or crow though they are all intelligent birds. Crows have been shown to work in unison and alone, and even use tools.

    The book cover in the first panel says “Poe,” so I follow that the bird is a raven.

    In the third panel, Francis has on a confessional stole not seen earlier. Looks like ravens can get reconciliation, too.

    Francis’ patron and namesake preached to the birds and animals—why cannot his dutiful adopted son do likewise?
