Even as we revel in the All Saints'-All Souls'-All Brackets' triduum, the entire world is still basking in the glow of Anna Alexander's victory in the quest for the Golden Halo last Lent. As you certainly know by now, she was a deaconess. What's one thing deacons do? They dismiss people.
So whatever you were planning for today, you are hereby dismissed. The Supreme Executive Committee is pleased to announce the 2019 Lent Madness bracket! (to read it, zoom in, open it in a new tab, print it out, or get a magnifying glass). We know you'll want to cancel your plans and spend the rest of the day poring over every saint and every match-up.
Also, since you have all that leftover Halloween candy, we know you're going to want to throw a special All Brackets' Day party. This year is the Tenth Anniversary of Lent Madness! Hard to believe it's been this long or this fun.
Like last year's bracket, this year's bracket is broken up into four quadrants of similarly grouped saints. These are 1) Biblical Saints 2) Monastics & Martyrs 3) Mostly Modern and 4) Miscellaneous.
If you want the inside scoop on the bracket, your prayers have been answered. This coming Thursday evening, November 8, the entire Supreme Executive Committee will be on Facebook Live to share Epic Bracketology with you and the entire world. Just go to the Lent Madness Facebook page on Thursday evening at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time to hear about the bracket. It is rumored that Tim and Scott will even answer viewer questions live on the air.
Now, that's not the only important thing you need to know. It's time to order your bracket posters and scorecards.
Remember, if early Christmas decorations are bumming you out, you can confound everyone by wishing them a Happy Lent!
