God was faithful and im thankful for the mercy bestowed upon us and intercession made by St Maria Goretti.

    I also got information that one of the people who had made my life difficult and accused me of doing all sorts of havoc at my workplace got a transfer far away from my department and he doesnt have a direct route to affecting or negatively influencing my work life again
