The Massabki Brothers (Arabic: الأخوة المسابكيين‎), Abdel Moati Massabki, Francis Massabki and Raphael Massabki[1] , are three Maronite saints from Damascus. The three were brothers and children of Nehme Massabki. They were killed by Muslims while they were praying inside a Franciscan church in Damascus. [2] Pope Pius XI proclaimed the beatification of the three brothers in 1926.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8]
