Spider Crawls on Pope Benedict XVI's Face During Prague Address

Arachnids know no awe. To read the full story and see a video, click on the title above.

In Texas, we have taratulas, not really dangerous, and black widow spiders and brown recluse spiders; both are very poisonous. I can remember waking at night and watching the brown recluse spiders or fiddlebacks scuttle for their hiding places. There is nothing like finding one squashed on your pillow.

Even if not poisonous, spider bites can be painful. I have been nailed more than once by a non-venomous spider. The Pope was very lucky.

Luck is just a nickname for God.
