Nazareno Santolini (in religious life, Nazareno di Maria Immacolata) was a professed priest of the Congregation of the Passion of Jesus Christ.
He was a living example and an outstanding witness and teacher of Passionist identity. He touched many lives with his paternal affection. He had a profound influence on young people who implicitly trusted him. He knew how to listen to them with compassion, to lovingly assist them and to understand their problems. He spent nights in prayer, kneeling on the bare floor.
He was declared Venerable in 1989.
