    Former professor at Catholic University of Milan
    He was ordained at the unusually early age of 24.
    He hosts his own TV show.
    He's had some very strange positions in the Catholic Church, including being the official envoy to the Pentecostal churches.
    Being the official preacher to two Popes who were/are excellent preachers themselves is pretty darn impressive.
    His preaching and writings concentrate on the basics and are very down to earth.
    He does a superb job of defending the teachings of his church.
    He believes that priests should be the servants and even friends of the people.
    He gives politicians hell for all their failings.
    He also gave hell to the priests and bishops that have been involved in scandals.
    He's very likable.
