"A lot of people see Lent as the church's season of doom, and gloom, and guilt, and depression, and eating dirt," says Tim Schenck, an Episcopalian priest in Massachusetts.
He acknowledges that repentance and self-denial are a part of Lent. People can also use it as a time to take on positive practices, which is kind of the point.
"What could be more joyful than a season in the church year specifically set aside to grow your faith, to be closer to God? Schenck asks.
So, four years ago, he started Lent Madness.
"We put 32 saints in a basketball-type bracket and they go at it," Schenck says.
As Lent Madness founder Tim Schenck says, by virtue of baptism, even flawed people are saints - and saints, when you learn about them, are flawed people.
"So often we stick saints in stained glass and we put them in statues, or trap them into oil paintings," Schenck says.
