Harriet Tubman wins 2020 Golden Halo!

Harriet Tubman Gold Halo winner

The Supreme Executive Committee of Lent Madness congratulates Harriet Tubman for winning the 2020 Golden Halo. Harriet became the 11th saint to wear the highly coveted crown by defeating the always-inspiring and statuesque runner up, St. Joseph. She joins previous Golden Halo winners George Herbert (2010), C.S. Lewis (2011), Mary Magdalene (2012), Frances Perkins (2013), Charles Wesley (2014), Francis of Assisi (2015), Dietrich Bonhoeffer (2016), Florence Nightingale (2017), Anna Alexander (2018), and Martha of Bethany (2019).

Be the first one on your block to order the official Harriet Tubman 2020 Golden Halo mug. Your brand new mug will ship later this spring in plenty of time for you to serve your friends warm beverages (from a safe distance and without touching anything).

Want to nominate a saint for Lent Madness 2021? Tim and Scott will be opening up the week-long nomination process (aka Nominationtide) in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

Finally, blessings to all as we head into the Triduum and enter into the death and resurrection of our Lord. It’s been a privilege to have you join us on our Lenten pilgrimage. Stay safe out there, folks, and know that you remain in our prayers.

    Congratulations to Harriet Tubman for winning this year’s Golden Halo! But isn’t there one more battle?


    Thank you to everyone for your kind words about the memes and my Holy Week reflection – the link to which I will post one last time. My intent is to always provide some joy and a chuckle to see us through this penitential time. As most of you know by now, Palm Sunday services hit me pretty hard, but reflecting on it is helping me get through this troubling time. I expect further reflecting might be necessary as our isolation continues. Have a blessed Easter everyone.

    I voted for the two of them right to this difficult pairing at the end. Because of St. Joseph’s guidance and protection of our beloved Saviour and His Mother, I chose to stick with St. Joseph.

        Deborah Brennan, Social Justice doesn’t trump the Bible, it IS the Bible! And if the schools taught the Bible, they’d also have to teach the Q’ran, the Tanakh, the Buddhist scriptures, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, the Seven Teachings, and the sacred writings of allthe world religions. We do not live in a Christian-only world. To believe so is to limit God.

    Congratulations Harriet! But difficult choices throughout the entire Madness. And isn’t madness always difficult anyway? My first time to participate and what fun! Plus I met some saints I had no idea of. I think you should put together an 8 pack of mugs that include the last several years of Golden Halo winners including Harriet for 2020. We will eventually be sitting down together, not at 6 foot distances to drink coffee, chow down cookies, and toast the saints who keep praying for us.

    I seesawed back and forth between the two finalists, because it was one of the toughest choices I’ve had to make. I’m overjoyed to see Harriet Tubman on this year’s Golden Halo coffee mug. It is timely, given that today’s headlines are about how Covid-19 is infecting the African American community so severely. May we continue to pray with her and follow her good example in working for the health of this community and all others.

    Once again Lent Madness has both enlightened and entertained us with saints we’ve never heard of (OK, of whom we’ve never heard), people we didn’t knew were “official”saints, and well-known saints. Once again it’s been a wild ride, and this time it’s been in the middle of the 21st century equivalent of the bubonic plague. Thank you, SEC. Thank you, Celebrity Bloggers.

    I was pretty sure it would come down to Harriet and Joseph. I can’t imagine anyone else on the list beating either of them…and I was pretty sure Harriet would win. Hopefully Joseph will get another chance…he was pretty amazing in the strength of his faith and he is so often overlooked and treated as peripheral.

I have learned a lot spiritually, emotionally, and a lot about my own strengths and finding my voice! Something a lot of women do not realize that they are important, not just as mothers and feeders, but, we do have a brain, thoughts and feelings! On another note, I have been trying to order the two mugs for 2019 & 2020, cannot seem to finalize my order, but I will persevere!
    Thank you and praise for all involved in this madness and for me personally, the work put into this very special Lenton Study! Be safe, social distancing is the only way to stop, the spread of this deadly virus!

The celebrity bloggers were AWESOME this year — thank you all so much for your instruction and insights. I know Tim and Scott work very hard to keep this going — again, thank you both so much. And I know there are many people behind the scenes without whom this would never happen — thanks to you as well, most of whose names I have never “heard.” I was going to close by quoting the countdown clock — only ___ days to wait for LM 2021. The clock hasn’t been reset yet as I write. Oh well, I can get out my BCP and look up the date of Ash Thursday. Wait — that’s not on the movable feasts list! How is it possible?

      I sing a song of the saints of God,
      patient and brave and true,
      who toiled and fought and lived and died
      for the Lord they loved and knew.
      And one was a doctor, and one was a queen,
      and one was a shepherdess on the green:
      they were all of them saints of God, and I mean,
      God helping, to be one too.

      They loved their Lord so dear, so dear,
      and God’s love made them strong;
      and they followed the right, for Jesus’ sake,
      the whole of their good lives long.
      And one was a soldier, and one was a priest,
      and one was slain by a fierce wild beast:
      and there’s not any reason, no, not the least,
      why I shouldn’t be one too.

      They lived not only in ages past;
      there are hundreds of thousands still;
      the world is bright with the joyous saints
      who love to do Jesus’ will.
      You can meet them in school, or in lanes, or at sea,
      in church, or in trains, or in shops, or at tea;
      for the saints of God are just folk like me,
      and I mean to be one too.

    Thank you to Fr. Tim and Fr. Scott, all the fabulous Celebrity Bloggers and the Bracket Czar for yet another inspiring Lent Madness. This is my seventh LM and it never fails to educate, inspire and uplift me. I appreciate the virtual community of all the commentators and wish all of you a most blessed Holy Triduum and a glorious Easter. Be safe and well until we meet again.

    My father a WW11 Juno Survivor always told my brother and I — it is printed on our foreheads when we will come and when we will leave this place we called home, to go HOME with HIM!✝️

    This was the first season I didn’t receive the voting by email. I tried and tried to get on the email list by clicking on the page to sign up for emails but it didn’t work. I just now (4/11) put in my email on the subscribe link so I hope it works. I missed several days because I forgot to log in. Anyway, thanks for your work and humor–always a wonderful Lenten experience.
