Monday Madness -- First In-season Episode!

Lent Madness 2020 begins ONE MONTH FROM TODAY! As the excitement continues to build for Ash Thursday on February 27, we know that you, the Lent Madness global viewing public, have been staring at your screens for weeks wondering when the 2020 Monday Madness season opener would come your way. Wait no more! Tim and Scott are back at it with an action-packed episode recorded in a rare joint appearance at the Rooted in Jesus conference in Atlanta, GA.

In this week's episode, learn about Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church Michael Curry's bracket picks (we're pretty sure his enthusiasm for Lent Madness is merely a ploy for a promotion from PB to Supreme Executive Committee).

Now, everybody knows Bishop Curry is friends with Harry and Meaghan (do yourself a favor and rewatch his royal wedding sermon here). And obviously, Lent Madness was the talk of Buckingham Palace during that heady time. In fact, our royal watchers tell us that the real reason these two (Way of) Love birds are leaving England is to get closer to the Saintly Smackdown. We'll try to get them booked onto an upcoming episode of Monday Madness. Or maybe Her Majesty The Queen. When it comes to royalty, the SEC is uncharacteristically flexible.

Also in this episode, learn how you can get your very own giant bracket poster or Saintly Scorecard (single copy, bulk copies for savings, or ebook for your favorite Kindle device). Be prepared, for Lent Madness draweth nigh.

This is down here for social media sharing. You're welcome.

  1. Welcome back, Holy Foolishness. Its always great fun and we always learn something new. Keep it up. Been keeping up with Lenten Madness for a very long time. God's Blessings.

    1. Can't wait! I've been doing this for 5-6 years now, and the beginning becomes more

  2. That's Meghan, not Meaghan. They've obviously moved across the pond to be nearer Bishop Michael.
    Greetings from Europe (for the time being). Brexit is a form of Lent Madness.

  3. All those Elizabeths in the 2020 bracket, and now mention of Her Majesty the Queen. Has something been in the works since last year?

    1. Lent Madness begins on Ash Thursday, not Ash Wednesday. The former is about saints duking it out throughout these 40 days and 40 nights; the latter is about repentance and the start of the penitential season of Lent.

  4. Looking forward to adding some new folks and share the fun and education to the Masses (get it!?). I'll be including a link to LentMadness in a future SaintsforSinners Newsletter and Blog post from SaintsforSinners. I'm still sipping on my Saint Martha of Bethany mug and shared a bunch with friends and family. Everyone loved their Saint Martha of Bethany coffee mug! Very excited I'll be picking the Golden Halo winner this year!

  5. I respect and admire our Presiding Bishop
    But, why do you have to mention he is friends with Prince Harry and his wife? Does it contribute to the message? I prefer if you stay away from politics

  6. I'm so ready for Martha's reign to end! The cognitive dissonance of having to wash my golden halo mug with Martha's image....Should I be doing the dishes or should I be choosing the better thing....?

  7. Lent Madness and less than a month until pitchers and catchers report - Easter and Spring are on the way!!!!!

  8. I wish I’d known you were going to be in Atlanta. We could’ve gotten together for a cuppa!

  9. Life has its ups and downs over the years. But Lent Madness endures. You've seen me through some crazy times and this year is no exception. So glad you're still there.

  10. I am so excited - I love looking at the Lenten countdown to see how many days until Ash Wednesday.
