Monday Madness — Faithful Four Edition

As Lent Madness reaches its peak excitement with the onset of the Faithful Four, Tim and Scott are back with another episode of Monday Madness. They give an overview of the Faithful Four and the coming Championship smackdown, but also assure you that the 2021 Golden Halo will be awarded in time for you to properly observe the latter part of Holy Week. Because Godliness comes before silliness. Or cleanliness. Or something.

Naturally, there’s a bit of product placement, as Scott sips (single origin coffee*) from his 2019 Golden Halo Winner Martha of Bethany mug. You can get your own mug, too! And also a hint of what’s coming for everybody’s favorite ecclesiastical season of Nominationtide.

Even the Supreme Executive Committee, not known for their tiny egos or excessive humility, must admit that Lent Madness could not happen without legions of bloggers, writers, editors, researchers, marketers, bracket-keepers, videographers, poets, and more. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to everyone who makes Lent Madness possible.

This is here for social media sharing and also so you can tape it to your fridge as a reminder to come back to this website on Wednesday to learn about its special name.

    Lent has flown by this year I didn’t have time to miss the fries I I gave up, probably due to weekdaily Lenten Madness. (which I think the NCAA should incorporate)
    Is Monday Madness a year round thing?

    Once again, members of the SEC, you have brought us a remarkable gaggle–I mean group–of amazing people who, each in his or her own way, has shown the light of Christ and carried the love of God to others. And yet, according to the grand old hymn, these saints of God “are just folk like me, and I mean to be one, too.” (Is there a patron saint of humor?)

    Lenten Madness is one of the Crown Jewels of Lent. Bringing to light the plethora of Saints, some obscure & forgotten by most, is a terrific gift to the Church. Thank You all!

    A shout out and special thanks to ALL the minions who keep these two SEC-sy evil geniuses in business, year after year.
    Seriously, though. Thank you.
    It has been fun.

    I am shocked! Shocked! This is NOT the stuffy old Forward Movement! Alleluia! My grandfather was editor of Forth The Spirit of Missions which I understand became The Episcopalian. That long defunct magazine had the excellent Episco-cats cartoons but little other humor so I am delighted to see Anglican irreverence, humor and joy here. Thank you so much!
