Some weird idea crossed my mind at the end of the Gospel reading this morning. The last line says, "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send in more labourers to collect the harvest." I was wondering labourers only for collecting the harvest? What happened to those who planted the crop? Those who were looking after it so long? Where did they disappear? Why not call them back again? Is it that these labourers employed earlier, turned out to be like most of our government employees who are very much present on the payroll and no where else... least of all at their job/desk?
Whatever be the case, there is work at hand!!
