Perhaps you know of it already ... but if you don't, I have a great suggestion for Lent that will bring you a step closer to the Saints (in a manner of speaking).
Lent Madness was the brainchild of a priest, Rev. Tim Schenck (who is also one of the authors on The Farm's feature A Few Good Writers). Inspired by the building frenzy of the NCAA basketball tournament (a.k.a. March Madness), Fr. Tim conjured up 'smackdowns', featuring Saints and saintly folk pitted against one another, with the winner obtaining the coveted "Golden Halo".
Years have passed, Fr. Tim invited another blogger, the Rev. Scott Gunn (one of his real friends in real life) to join him in choosing the saints on tap for each year's competition. Forward Movement (you know, the Day By Day publishers?) came on board as a sponsor of the melee. From time to time, other religious folk have made a guest appearance to support this or that saint in the head-to-head battles, which leads us to more information each of the saints in the lineup. Go to: http://www.lentmadness.org/
to learn more or to join in the fun of voting for your "picks". You can also find Lenten Madness on Facebook where from time to time Tim and Scott post pithy videos on both their own pesonal rivalries and Lenten Madness information. Enjoy!
