Beirut, Brussels, October 26th, 2015 (SIGNIS/Vatican news). The Catholic website www.abouna.org, directed by Father Rifat Bader – a Jordanian priest of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem - was voted best Arab Christian website in the competition organized by the Arab Christian Media Festival, an annual event organized by the Federation of Catholic Journalists in Lebanon.

Fr. Bader, director of the Catholic Center for Studies and Media, dedicated the award received in Beirut also to "two dear old friends of the website, which at the time were the first readers and editors" the two bishops of Aleppo Boulos al-Yazigi and Mar Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim, abducted last April. Fr. Bader hopes he will soon be able to give the news of their release on his website "and for an end to violence in their Homeland, Syria".
