[Autom. eng. transl.] The first two years of priestly service, from 1935 to 1937, as chaplain of Canale d'Agordo and Agordo: the present contribution aims to investigate what the patriarch Albino Luciani described, shortly before going up to the papal throne, as the most beautiful years of his ministry. From the administration of the sacraments to the teaching of religion in the Technical Mining Institute; from the encounter with the difficulties of the Agordan miners to the determined adhesion to the apostolic union of the clergy; from the assiduous frequentation with the two brothers Luigi and Felice Cappello, rehabilitated in the eyes of the clergy and the Bellunese population after years of "exile" from the diocese due to heavy accusations of modernism, to the miraculous visions of Voltago in these years of first ministry it is possible to recognize two aspects of Luciani's fundamental formation in order to understand many successive choices: the spirituality of estrangement from the world and the full and immediate obedience to the will of the superiors understood as an expression of God's will.
