Stumbling Into Grace book coverStumbling into Grace: How We Meet God in Tiny Works of Mercy

By Mary Pezzulo

Publisher: Ave Maria Press (June 4, 2021)

Winner of a second-place award in the Catholic social teaching category from the Catholic Media Association.

Mary Pezzulo intended to learn all about God through graduate studies in philosophy and Christian ethics, but serious illness ruined those plans and landed her young family in desperate straits. Despite chronic illness, deep poverty, blatant discrimination, and the cruelty she encountered, Pezzulo began tripping over God in the tiny works of mercy she offered to others and received herself. With striking candor and gritty faith she shows us how we also can meet God in the smallest acts of love.
