The Spider Who Saved Christmas tells the tale of what happened to the Holy Family on their way to Egypt after receiving the message of the angel. When Joseph, Mary, and Jesus are in danger of being discovered and harmed by Herod’s murderous soldiers, a cave-dwelling spider named Nephila risks her and her children’s safety to help her hallowed visitors.
Majestically illustrated by artist Randy Gallegos, EWTN host Raymond Arroyo’s moving story sheds new light on a family of Golden Silk Orb Weavers, whose silk is considered the most precious of all and is displayed at Christmastime in the sparkling tinsel that glints from evergreen trees the world over. After reading this book, you’ll always remember Nephila in the twinkling tinsel. Though small and feared, she met divinity and reflected His light as only she could.
Like each of us … she was there for a reason.

I bought this book for my granddaughter. Love the story, I have so many thoughts on this story. Joseph ready to protect Mary and the child Jesus, Mary her gentleness and love for God's creatures and how God uses even the tiniest of his creatures. I highly recommend this book. I enjoyed reading this book.
