Carpe diem is a phrase from a Latin poem by Horace which means “seize the day”. Carpe is literally translated as “to pick, pluck, pluck off, cull, crop, gather”. Diem on the other hand simply connotes “day”. Roman poet Ovid used this phrase to mean “to enjoy, seize, use, and live”. For the author, this is about changing our attitude – by simply being critical, being involved and to express one’s thought. This is what this blog is trying to do – just to contribute in the understanding of the social realities by examining issues that affect our lives.

Carpe diem is a call for individual and collective action.

    The subsequent time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as significantly as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I essentially believed youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one factor which you might repair for those who werent too busy searching for attention.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

      Thank you for your comment.
      But I am not a priest either. I don’t even know how to be one.
      Nevertheless, you can perhaps visit a nearby parish or a diocese in your area to inquire.
      They are in the better position to explain to you how it works or how it can be done.

      I have also dreamed of becoming a priest when I was younger. I even entered a seminary once.
      But I gave it up later. You know what? I found out that it is not my vocation. God is calling me to serve him in different ways.
      So, I became an activist and now a human rights defender.

      I believe serving the people is one way of serving God.
      Hope this insight makes sense to you….
      Thank you!

    I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion,
    if all site owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
