Holy Week Saints and Sinners
During Lent, my cyber friend Fr Tim Schenck, a clergy colleague who blogs at Clergy Family Confidential (see blogroll, right), has been hosting Lent Madness on his blog, in which saints from the earliest days of Christianity right up to fairly recent history have been vying for the Golden Halo by way of capturing reader votes.
Fr Tim has had in mind helping us all learn more about the Saints of the Church both new and old as well as entertaining us with quirks and kitsch in succeeding rounds, although some of us who shall remain unnamed on this blog have chosen "Votes for Women" as a subtheme for the program.
Lent Madness is down to the Final Four this week and Fr Tim in his wisdom or folly (we don't get to vote on that) has chosen four "celebrity bloggers" to advocate for and/or trash talk about the Final Four Saints: C.S. Lewis, Clare, Thomas Becket, and Perpetua.
Please visit Fr. Tim's blog for further details, but here is a hint: one of the celebrity bloggers, c'est moi.
Vote early and often!
