Before he was ordained a priest, he had taken the Dominican habit, and after his profession, he was sent to Bologna University, where he studied and obtained his degrees.

When only 20 years old he was appointed professor of philosophy for the province.

'Of his theological teaching it is said "he mingled the thorns of Calvary with those of learning", leading his pupils to the foot of the cross.'

and that 'he was able to instill a love of supernatural virtue, more by example than by eloquence.'

Enzo Lodi wrote in his Saints of the Roman Calendar (1992) that the canonization of St Pius V in 1712 was the last canonization of a Pope until 1954 when St Pius X was canonized (curiously by Pius XII).

While a Prior, he became confessor for the governor of Milan. He would make the journey to that city on foot, in any weather and in silence save to say the Breviary and Rosary with a traveling companion. He refused to buy a thicker coat for the winter weather, asking what sort of poverty monks professed who went clothed as comfortably as those in the world.
