  1. Looks like it might be tough for Julian of Norwich and Hildegard, but I’ll shamelessly beg votes for those great gals. Note: I’m assuming Theresa of Avila will trounce what’s-his-name.

    The only member of the Schenck family (including me) to cast a vote in Lent Madness was my eldest son. He voted for his namesake, Benedict. And, yes, he was named in 1999 — way before the current pope was enthroned!
