His advice to Max is to give the chicken back to Franz. And Franz is really happy to have his chicken back. The priest now has a pretty good idea that Benny is behind all of this. But the chicken reply he should not be strict with Benny in this case – because there is more money in the offerings. – Twice the reward is of course a hidden message, because charity and helping suffering people is good for all mankind.
