The Legend of the Ladybug
According to European folklore, sometime during the Middle Ages, a horde of insects descended upon vast land holdings owned by several lords. The voracious insects chomped their way across fields, leaving nothing but devastation in their wake. Fearful that all their food crops would be destroyed, the serfs and all the lords and ladies prayed to the Virgin Mary for help.
A host of red and black beetles appeared. The beetles ate all the invading insects until, at last, all the crops were saved. From that day forward, these beetles became known as "Our Lady's bugs", or "Ladybugs."
Today, our children face a host of moral and spiritual dangers that has literally infested our society and continuously threatens to devastate our families and schools. We believe that the main reason we have entrusted the education of our children to our catholic school is precisely to give them a solid foundation of faith, morals, and education on which to stand.
If we have entrusted so much to our school, then we need to uplift it in prayer. So each week we intercede for our principal, teachers, staff, priest, and especially our children.
We arm ourselves with the power of the rosary and the powerful intercession of our Blessed Mother.
