So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!”
“Palm Sunday tells us that…it is the cross that is the true tree of life.”

“There were superstitious beliefs that it was unlucky to kill a ladybug, and that the verse would make them fly off. Another superstition states that you should chant the verse if a ladybug lands on you: if it then flies away again, your wish will come true.
Ladybugs are useful as eaters of aphids, which would otherwise damage plants. They can also be a nuisance, but there would be logic from a farmer or gardener’s viewpoint in trying to shoo them away rather than kill them. This could be the rational basis for teaching children to respect them.”
Ladybugs = no aphids
