According to Christian beliefs, the robin plucks a thorn from Christ’s crown and ends up piercing its breast. The little robin sees Jesus on the cross with his crown of thorns and flies around and around until he finds a way to remove one of them. By removing that thorn, the little bird gets pierced himself. 
I believe each of us should try and be that little robin - like my parents did during my time in hospital. When we see someone in pain, we should ask ourselves: ‘What can I do to give them comfort? What can I do to help them see the light?’
