On the 17th anniversary of abouna.org website

Fr. Dr Rif'at Bader

August 27, 2020 marks the 17th Anniversary of abouna.org website, has been launched in 2003.

On this occasion, those in charge of the abouna.org sites in both Arabic and English languages, are pleased to emphasize the slogan adopted earlier, namely “Media for humanity through the culture of encounter”, and to convey gratitude for the supportive efforts exerted by friends, individuals, and institutions that aim to attain goodness for humanity.

The Catholic Center for Studies and Media (CCSM) also extends thanks and appreciation to the Latin Patriarchate, as it was the side that established the CCSM in 2012. Since then, the abouna.org site was effectively issued by the CCSM, which is supervised administratively and financially by the Latin Patriarchate.

This year was not a smooth one particularly for abouna.org website, especially during the current Corona virus crisis, as it took upon itself the responsibility of live-streaming Holy Masses at the time of lockdown, and took the slogan "My Home is My Church", a matter which had huge repercussions in both Jordan and Palestine, as well as in several countries worldwide.

Apart from live-streaming Sunday and holiday Masses, the site furthermore live-streamed Holy Masses for the faithful and the pious whose numbers doubled on the abouna.org website, on its Facebook page and YouTube, at a time when the main website continued to post new articles and news items every morning.

On February 12, 2020, the abouna.org website had a new look as it contains several new additions which are considered among the latest technologies in the world. On this occasion, we reiterate our thanks to all those whom we had cooperated with in the pre-Corona period through hold conferences, seminars and educational workshops, especially with regards to helping young people make good use of social media to serve as “a supporter of the culture of encounter.”

On the 17th anniversary of abouna.org website, we implore the Almighty God to have a new year of abounding with goodness and blessings, whereby the efforts undertaken by the workers in international medical laboratories would bear fruit by finding the appropriate vaccine for the pandemic Corona disease which painfully and sorrowfully caused the death on innocent people worldwide. We also ask the Lord to have mercy on the late Fr. Firas Hijazin and let the perpetual light shine upon him. He was "martyred" by this virus. He was as well closely associated with all those in charge of the abouna.org website, as he used to send news items from time to time to be posted. He also celebrated several Holy Masses which were live-streamed during the Corona pandemic lockdown.

We are hopeful and optimistic that the new year will be a year of goodness and blessings, a year of good health and wellness for mankind and humanity. We look forward to the future hoping that this period that wreaked havoc on humanity would come to an end so that we can resume convening training workshops and international conferences as has been the case in the past years.

Happy anniversary
