He later went to Rome and earned a Licentiate in 2001 and Doctorate in Biblical Revelation in 2005 from Pontifical Urban University where he had been on the faculty for a long time.  

Fr Peter Paul Saldanha has authored a book titled ‘The Church: Mystery of Love and Communion’ which reveals his knowledge and commitment to the church. He is known to be very people-friendly.

As your name itself rightly indicates you have a great love for Jesus like St Peter and a great love for His people like St Paul. You are not only a Bishop but a Saint in the making. We your students and brother priests are witnesses for this. God had a beautiful plan for you and through you a wonderful plan for the diocese and the society at large. Heart is full of joy here seeing the holiness we find in your eyes. You are God's choice.
    I along with the tender teanagers in the diocese (YCS/YSM) congratulate you and pray for the Holy Spirit upon you still more.We assure you our devotedness and seek your blessings and guidence.May St Thomas whose solemnity we celebrate today intercede for you.
