He was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Milan on June 11, 1983, by Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini and served for three years in the parish of St. Giovanni Bosco in Milan. Then he was sent to the Vatican’s Diplomatic School, the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy in Rome, where he obtained a Doctorate in Sacred Theology (STD) and a Licentiate in Canon Law (JCL) from the Pontifical Gregorian University.
