Lent Madness: Championship RoundPosted: April 21, 2011
After a lively Final Four featuring C.S. Lewis, Clare, Thomas Becket, Perpetua and four dueling celebrity bloggers, it’s all come down to this: C.S. Lewis vs. Thomas Becket battling it out for the Golden Halo.
While C.S. Lewis held a commanding lead throughout most of his matchup with Clare, Becket and Perpetua was a see-saw competition that went down to the wire. A late surge for the Archbishop put him over the top to the thrill of many and bitter disappointment to many others. Lent Madness 2011 has been anything but dull!
Percentagewise, C.S. Lewis defeated Clare 55% to 45% with 215 votes cast. Becket took out Perpetua 54% to 46% with an unprecedented 258 votes cast. Click Lent Madness 2011 to view the updated tournament bracket.
The polls will close at 12:00 noon Eastern Standard Time on Holy Saturday and the Lent Madness 2011 champion will be crowned. 32 saints were called into this madness yet only one will be chosen. And that choice, my friends, is up to you.
After the basic saintly information of the initial round, Quotes and Quirks in the Round of the Saintly Sixteen, Saintly Kitsch in the Round of the Elate Eight, and Celebrity Bloggers in the Final Four, there is little left to say. I will leave it up to those who choose to comment on this post to provide the advocacy. See? Democracy is alive, well, and thriving in the Church.
So have at it, have fun, and may the “best” saint win!
