We know you love Lent Madness, and we hope you know the Supreme Executive Committee loves you. In fact, the Tim and Scott love you so much that — even though it’s Holy Week and they’re quite busy — they’re giving you two extra bonus FREE Pocket Lent cards.
Now, you might be asking, “What’s a Pocket Lent card?” If that was you asking that question, we know you aren’t one of the over 10,000 lucky owners of the 2016 Saintly Scorecard, the essential printed guide to Lent Madness. For those who own the book (now worth a fortune on eBay, since it sold out), you’ll know that Pocket Lent cards are saintly trading cards much like baseball cards only better, holier, funnier, and collectable-ier. The Saintly Scorecard came with six cards featuring the likes of George Herbert, Brigid of Kildare, Mary Magdalene, and more.
See below for your two bonus cards. Just print them out on a color printer and you’ll be all set. Or use a black & white printer and then go crazy with tiny coloring markers. Laminate your new cards for extra credit. If you stick something fragrant on the cards for a while, you can even pretend your printout is scratch-n-sniff!
As you enjoy your two new cards and the six existing cards in your Saintly Scorecard, you can think about which Lent Madness saints you’d like to see made into Pocket Lent cards in the future. Let us know in the comments. You can also give thanks for Rachel Jones, Michael Phillips, and Richelle Thompson, the Forward Movement staff whose creative fruits you’re seeing here.
Hopefully this will help you through the last few hours of Lent Madness Withdrawal on this, the last weekend of Lent Madness 2016.
