February 18, 2015 Comments Off on Lenten Madness and St. Luke’s
We are including a new feature this year on the Lenten Blog! We are participating in Lenten Madness with a special twist.
For those of you who don’t know what Lenten Madness is, here is what it is from the Lenten Madness site itself:
The format is straightforward: 32 saints are placed into a tournament-like single elimination bracket. Each pairing remains open for a set period of time and people vote for their favorite saint. 16 saints make it to the Round of the Saintly Sixteen; eight advance to the Round of the Elate Eight; four make it to the Faithful Four; two to the Championship; and the winner is awarded the coveted Golden Halo. The first round consists of basic biographical information about each of the 32 saints. Things get a bit more interesting in the subsequent rounds as we offer quotes and quirks, explore legends, and even move into the area of saintly kitsch.
So, every day of Lent you vote twice for your favorite saint — once on the Lenten Madness site (http://www.lentmadness.org/) and once right here! We can see how St. Luke’s stacks up to the rest of the Lenten Madness voters! Results will be posted the next day.
