Charlotte's Web

Where is there a religious metaphor in the text? Is it referring to the cathedral?

This is from EB White's "Once More to the Lake" not charlottes web

As soon as Lurvy sees the words in the web, he clasps his hands together and prays. We see here how closely White is associating the miracle of Charlotte’s web with religious miracle, only here it is at the expense of the adults. Whereas before, when White placed information about Sunday School adjacent to the information Fern gave her parents about the animals, he highlighted the unreasonableness of the man that believes in organized religion but not the every day miracles that surround him.
