He was given the degree of doctor in theology in 1795, appointed to the parish of San Geronimo Coatepec, and made secretary of the diocese of Puebla. In 1818 he was elected canon of the cathedral, and in 182.5 the government appointed him minister to the pope, to obtain the recognition of the republic and arrange a convention. He sailed for London, and afterward went to Paris, and in December, 1828, received new instructions in Florence. His negotiations with Pius VIII., and afterward with Gregory XVI., ended in a satisfactory treaty between the apostolic see and the government of the republic. He was consecrated bishop of Puebla in Rome by Cardinal Odescalchi in March, 1831, and returned to Mexico. He founded the correctional asylum for women, improved the hospital, and favored all the charitable institutions of Puebla.
