He served in the Swiss Guard from 1989 to 1992 for Pope John Paul II, who was recently canonized.”

‘Ultimately, the Lord calls you to holiness, to be his disciples, always ready to listen to his voice, to do his will and to accomplish it in the daily fulfilment of your duties. This will contribute to make you “good Christians” and at the same time “exemplary soldiers”, animated by that evangelical spirit which makes each baptized person “yeast” able to ferment the mass and “light” that illuminates and warms the environment where you live and work.’ (Pope Benedict XVI, Address to the Pontifical Swiss Guards, 5 May 2007)
