Guess who's going to be a celebrity blogger?

Oh, go on, guess! No, not Queen Elizabeth...  No, not Miss Piggy.  Oh, all right, it's me! I've been asked to be one of the bloggers for Lent Madness, now entering its third year of high impact, head-to-head, saintly smackdowns as the blessed throughout the ages battle for the coveted Golden Halo.

Who knew that all those years of church calendar geekery would lead to such a prestigious position?  I'd like to thank Scott Gunn and Tim Schenck for including me in the tremendous line-up of celebrity bloggers.  It is an honor and a privilege.  And now I need to write some kick-ass profiles of saints.

So head on over to Lent Madness, check out this year's bracket, sign up for email updates, and generally get ready for some holy mayhem starting one month from now.  I'll be there!

I learned a new saint today, thanks to Alisa: St Wulfstan, patron of vegetarians. What a name!

I want to win a golden halo! ;-) In any case, that sounds like a blast and a half. Congrats!

Just looked at the brackets and most of my picks were easy in the extreme. But Joan of Arc vs Lancelot Andrewes? - that's impossible!!
