An eight-legged papal audience

September 27, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A large spider appeared on Pope Benedict XVI's white robes and crawled up his face as he addressed politicians and diplomats in Prague.

When it reached his ear, Benedict gave it a swat. But it reappeared on his left shoulder and scampered down his robe.

As the pope left the medieval Prague Castle's Spanish Hall, the spider could be seen hanging from a piece of web.
