Lowly earthworm could be a role model

Have you ever considered the spirituality of Lumbricus terrestris? The lowly earthworm was actually the subject of a booklet Sister Patrice Colletti, SDS created during her novitiate. She describes earthworm farming (aka vermicomposting) and suggests the creepy-crawler might even be a role model: “Earthworms live in the dark, but must come to the surface to feed. They take in whatever the world offers, mostly what other living creatures consider refuse. Working solo, but often near others, they digest whatever is available to them, and provide an amazingly rich output that nourishes new life for our world.”
