To begin with, Buddy’s sense of identity is shaped through the tradition of baking fruitcakes every year at the beginning of winter with his cousin.

Every year between Black Friday and Christmas time my family and I go to different malls to seek out all of the great discounts.

I started being much more active in the church youth group, participating in Christmas plays and fund-raisers for the youth who are going for an international event, called, World Youth Day. The Holy Father himself is going to celebrate mass for all those present. I keep in mind that when the next one comes, I would be the first person to sign up. Whenever I am in church, I always thank the Lord for getting me through that time, and pray for the strength to keep it up. I read online about how many recovering Bulimics who are Catholic are moving on in their lives.
