Lent Madness: Final FourPosted: March 24, 2010
Thanks to all of you we have whittled down the opening field of 32 saints in Lent Madness to the Final Four. Congratulations to Francis of Assisi, Julian of Norwich, Theresa of Avila, and George Herbert. You have done yourselves proud and I will give you the day to revel in your accomplishments.
But I also know that simply getting to the Final Four is not enough. You must “press on to the goal,” to quote one of your fellow saints, a fellow named Paul who was not in this year’s tournament. As a coach, Paul also suggests that you “forget what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead.” Wise advice indeed.
The match-ups will pit Francis of Assisi vs. Julian of Norwich and Theresa of Avila vs. George Herbert. You can views the updated tournament bracket here: Lent Madness 2010And may the “best” saint win.
