Died July 1, 1865 also at Valletta, Malta--having fortold the time of his death.
Beatified May 9, 2001
Canonization pending.

Blessed Nazju spent his entire life in service of the Gospel in his community,  He received minor orders at 15, but felt unworthy of the priesthood.  The patrimony of his well to do family he dispersed to the poor, and when he had no funds of his own, would beg to obtain help for the many poor of the area.  He also dedicated himself to the Christian education of the poor boys and gorls of the area, as well as the welfare of the many sialors who made port there.

The strength and sustenance for his apostolates came from his singular devotion to the Eucharist; he attended Mass daily and was a daily communicant.  He also helped his family servant with her duties so that she, too, could attend Mass and receive Our Lord in the Eucharist.
