Golden Spoon Stickers

Advent is the beginning of the Catholic Church’s liturgical season. During Advent, not only do we prepare for the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we should also be awake all the time, to wait for the second coming of Christ.
Our “Food for Thought Christmas Special” starts with the delectable “Golden Spoon Stickers”.
