Welcome back for the first FULL WEEK of Lent Madness 2019. If you’re just joining in the fun, we’re glad you’re here! There’s plenty of madness to go and we’re delighted to have people jump aboard the purple Lenten train at any point in the season.
Over the weekend, in the only Saturday battle of the season, Ignatius of Loyola strode past Tikhon of Zadonsk 65% to 35% to advance to the Saintly Sixteen, where he’ll face the winner of Dominic vs. Marina the Monk.
Today we make our first foray into the Miscellaneous quadrant of the bracket as John Chrysostom faces Margaret of Cortona. Perhaps we should have had a play-in round to decide, once and for all, whether the correct pronunciation of “Chrysostom” should have the accent on the first or second syllable. But however you pronounce it, this should prove an intriguing battle to kick off your Monday.
And don’t forget, later today, in order to make your Monday complete, Tim and Scott will be releasing another epic episode of everyone’s favorite penitential viewing experience: Monday Madness. Stay tuned! (or just binge-watch old episodes).
