When I read a daily inspiration book on Wednesday, I was catched by an interesting quote said, “How happy I am to see myself imperfect and to be in need of God’s mercy.” apparently transcribed from one of St Therese of Lisieux’s sayings.

This quote remind me to a similar story I’ve read few years ago from a book titled “The Song of the Bird” originally written by Anthony de Mello, a Jesuit pastor.
