Proving, once again, they are accountable to no one, the Supreme Executive Committee has released Monday Madness on a Tuesday, whilst still calling it “Monday” Madness. Tim and Scott are here this week to celebrate the 2021 Golden Halo victory of Absalom Jones.
You might like to celebrate Absalom’s victory with a commemorative 2021 Golden Halo Winner Absalom Jones mug. Enjoy your favorite warm beverage and treasure the memories of this year’s Saintly Smackdown. Actually, buy two in case you break one!
By the way, if you’re trying to round out your Lent Madness mug collection, we still have a few 2019 Golden Halo Winner Martha of Bethany mugs left. (vintage Lent Madness mugs are a sound financial investment, by the way – basically the ecclesiastical equivalent of Bitcoin)
Tim and Scott also remind everyone how to nominate your favorite saints for Lent Madness 2022. Sometime during Eastertide, the SEC will start Nominationtide, a weeklong season during which you may submit your nominations for the Lent Madness 2022 bracket. Each person is invited to submit ONE saint and say why that saint should be included. That’s the one and only way to nominate saints, and it’s happening in the next few weeks.
While you wait for Lent to start next year, you might like to pass the time by enjoying reflections for each day of Eastertide. Scott has written reflections for Eastertide, and they’re being posted every day over on 50days.org.
