Prefect, Congregation for the Clergy

"I had a type of flash, where I thought about the meaning of my life and what I wanted to do with it. I asked myself 'What could I do that could make me feel complete?' Maybe if I didn't have a vocation, I would have thought of starting a family, but since I was focused on God, I followed my priestly vocation.”

In 2009, he was a key player in the so called 'Year of the Priest' which was launched by Benedict XVI, who is also the Pope who made him cardinal.

His managing skills have earned him a good reputation these last few years. Some have considered him a qualified candidate to lead the Vatican's Secretariat of State.
