Lent Madness XIV Pre-game Show

With all major sporting events, there's the game, but only after the pre-game show. It's no different with Lent Madness. This year's pre-game entertainment comes from the Cathedral of St. James in South Bend, IN. Each year, they paint peg dolls of all the saints in the bracket. Yes, really! As if that's not cool enough, they then make an amazing video. So here is the pre-game video for Lent Madness XIV.

And of course, you won't want to forget to sing along with the official hymn of Lent Madness, brought to you by St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Ladue, MO.

Today is a great day to fill out your online bracket (go to the Bracket tab and click Play a Bracket to compete against everyone who fills one out in advance). Then, tomorrow, we hope you'll be in church for Ash Wednesday. The Saintly Smackdown begins at 8:00 a.m. EST on Ash Thursday, February 23.
