Monday Madness -- January 29, 2024

Tim and Scott are back with another action-packed, fun-filled episode of Monday Madness. This week, they review several resources that are available to help you prepare for Lent Madness (and Lent).

Watch the video to learn more, but you can get your very own giant bracket poster (in full color!) for just a few dollars. Order yours today. Put one up at home and at work. They look great on the wall in your parish hall or Sunday school classroom. No one's stopping you from putting one on your car. Or turning two of them into a sandwich board and walking around your neighborhood yelling "Lent Madness is Near!" at the top of your lungs.

And you might also like to get a colorable poster to support the whole family through the season of Lent. These colorable posters are sold in packs of 25, so they're perfect to give to your whole church. Buy the Join the Journey through Lent calendar poster or get way ahead of the game and order your Alleluia! 50 Days and 50 Ways to Celebrate Easter calendar poster.

Oh, and we would be remiss if we did not include links to the two books that Tim mentioned in the video. These are books inviting you to a humorous and joyful approach to Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter, written by Tim and illustrated by Jay Sidebotham. Check out Dog in the Manger: Finding God in Christmas Chaos and Dust Bunnies in the Basket: Finding God in Lent & Easter.

The digital Saintly Scorecard is coming soon, probably the next few days. Stay tuned!

  1. Ah, another action-packed episode of Monday Madness from Tim and Scott. I would LOVE to see "A Case for Lent!" I'm sure it would win an Oscar or two.

    I look forward to downloading the FREE (can't beat the price, folks) digital scorecard when it is available.

    Thanks to all for this fun and meaningful Lenten resource.

    Happy Lent!

  2. I’m sad we don’t have the booklets this year! But I’m looking forward to the digital brackets! I look forward to Lent Madness every year - lots to learn about holy folks!

  3. What is the target age for the Easter and Christmas books? Will buy, but need to know the target audience to know how many!

  4. Hi,
    I love what you are doing, but wondering how I can keep my church involved in Lent Madness since you are no longer (a) having the Saintly Scorecard where we can read about the saints and vote ahead of time for the entire bracket, and (b) having a letter or legal sized bracket (instead of only the large bracket) so everyone can have their own.
    Any suggestions? I'm afraid you are going to lose a lot of people who have been involved in the past.

  5. Woo Hoo! Lent Madness 2024 smackdown begins with the battle of the Thomas!Who shall prevail? Want your favorite Saint Thomas to win? Be sure to vote!!!

  6. Hi guys! I too am looking forward to the online scorecard since no books will be printed this year. I can only imagine how busy you both must be daily. If there is anything I can do to help with writing/proofreading/copying and pasting the bios for this year's Saints, I'd be more than happy to help you out!

  7. I have played Lent Madness before but I'm having difficulty finding the players biographies this year. Help!

  8. I miss the booklet summarizing each saint. I recognize that Google and Wikipedia provide information, however I miss having a document I can mark to highlight the facts and attributes I use to determine the "winner" in matches.
