A Solemn Proclamation from the Supreme Executive Committee of Lent Madness
Be it known to all unto whom these present letters may come, that the Episcopal Church is preparing to gather in its General Convention, said Convention to be held in the city and diocese of Indianapolis in the Hoosier state; and
Whereas, It would be madness if no one lent the Convention a bit of holy humor and saintly piety; and
Whereas, The Supreme Executive Committee has taken unto itself to improve and saintify the General Convention; now therefore be it
Resolved, That Friday, July 6, 2012 is hereby declared as Lent Madness Day; and be it further
Resolved, That Mary Magdalene, or a life-size cardboard image thereof, shall be present for those who wish to have their photographs taken or portraits painted with the winner of the Golden Halo in Lent Madness 2012; and be it further
Resolved, That the bracket for Lent Madness 2013 shall be revealed to all persons throughout the world on Lent Madness Day; and be it further
Resolved, That the first play-in match shall be held on this day, allowing General Convention guests, bishops, and deputies the opportunity to cast the most important vote of the entire Convention; and be it further
Resolved, That the entire Supreme Executive Committee shall be present at the Forward Movement booth of the exhibit hall to offer autographs of the aforementioned Supreme Executive Committee.
Given under our hand, seal, and smirk on this day, the twenty-second day of June in the two thousand and twelfth year of our Lord’s grace, being the Feast of St. Alban, who has never done well in Lent Madness.
