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.
