Monday Madness — March 6, 2017

Sorry for the delay in posting this week’s video. We’re blaming hackers from an Easter website trying to control Lent. Anyway, this week, Tim and Scott celebrate the success of the saintly smackdown in the first full week of this year’s competition. They also give shout outs to several churches who are fully enmeshed in the Madness.

Keep leaving comments, and remember that you can submit questions to the Supreme Executive Committee to be answered “live” “on the air” on next week’s “high quality” and “action-packed” episode of Monday Madness. Leave a comment on Facebook, tweet at us, or send your question–written in pencil–on a $20 bill.

We share several photos on the video, but here’s a sample to enjoy now: saintly smackdown fan Michelle has created quite an impressive display for the faculty and staff who are playing Lent Madness at Marin Catholic in Kentfield, California.

Tune in next week. For now, why not re-watch every episode of the Monday Madness oeuvre on LentMadnessTV?

    Has the SEC become PC?

      No, we prefer Mac.

        I suspected that was the case. As they say, once you go Mac, you don’t go back. 😉

      I missed something- where was the PC statement- I thought it was a PSA or a promotional piece- but not PC- What did I miss?

    Love your wry videos.
    But, Tim, would you please change the angle of your video cam? I’ve inspected your nostrils as much as I need to.

    I liked the sartorial statement. Clerical collars and black are a good look. Safe, but good.

    If I send in a question written in pencil on a 20 USD bill and send it to you in the US mail, will you write the answer in pencil on a 50 USD and send it to me in the US mail?

    Thank you both for your efforts to lead us onward in our faith. Your humor is wonderful and through it, I’ve come to learn about the saints and what drove their walks in faith. I’ve led an ecumenical way of life for more years than I care to count. Raised in the Pres. church, lived in a Catholic neighborhood and attended a school predominately (80%) Jewish. Now attending a Methodist church. Much good to be said for all these faiths. Now I can add Episcopal to the mix thanks to you both. Following you on your blogs. God bless you both!!

    We at Nazareth By The Sea Episcopal Church, Estate Nazareth, St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, celebrated Shrove Tuesday with a dinner and a movie: spaghetti dinner (the better to gorge with) and Minimalism: A Documentary.

    On March 26 after our 5 pm service, and along with our regular Agape Meal, we will watch Forks over Knives.

    Our bracket is on the wall.

    Uumm, does anyone else think that the “two” members of the SEC are beginning to actually resemble each visually? Does this happen over time as we enter deeper into saintly Madness? For that matter, has anyone actually seen them both in the same place at the same time? Hagiographic bi-location perhaps? In any event, I’m just glad they haven’t yet begun projecting themselves holographically three stories high like other supreme leaders we know! Thanks to you both for a fun Lenten journey every year, and please expect the Samuel Isaac Joseph insurgency to begin from the mountains of Colorado shortly!!!

    You might mention that for those who find the introductory music wonderful on first listen but grating on 5th and above, all they have to do is move the cursor to 30 seconds to get right to the SEC and their comments.

    I love the introductory music! I wouldn’t want to miss it! I love the closing music, too! Thanks for the SEC posts.

      I remember one year when someone wanted desparately to know how to bypass the opening organ. After several years of listening to it, I bypass it now… not that it’s not great music, I want my 30 seconds to do something else…like drape a purple piece of chiffon on my outdoor front chimney cross. I do outside decorating for Lent.

    I was sorry that William Wycliffe didn’t win. So few people seem to know about him. Surely he was the person who really started the Reformation, in fact, some call him the “Dayspring of the Reformation”! After all he was expelled in 1391 from Oxford University, England, for translating the Bible into English and proclaiming the priesthood of all believers. He fled to Geneva to avoid being burnt at the stake.
