Before his appointment, he requested the following, so that he may become a good bishop: „First of all, I would like to talk to those priests, who serve in parishes where there are Hungarian faithful, and I want them to tell me what they consider to be important, so that I may become a good bishop to the Hungarian faithful too. In the beginning, this is going to be my campus for action.”
