John Paul II (Latin: Ioannes Paulus II) – Karol Jozef Wojtyla. Born May 18, 1920 in Wadowice, Poland. Son of Karol Wojtyla and Emilia Kaczorowskich. Karol Wojtyla was baptized on June 20th, 1920. He was a very talented and athletic boy. He regularly played football and went skiing. A very important element in the life of Karol was the tours and walks around Wadowice. His mother died on April 13, 1929 at the age of 45. Three years later, in 1932, his brother Edmund died of scarlet fever at the age of 26. From September 1930, Karol Wojtyla began studying at the 8-year-old Men’s National Gymnasium named after Martin Wadowity in Wadowice. In the first class, encouraged by Fr. Kazimierz Figlewicz, Karol joined the altar servers, and eventually became the president. While studying in high school he became interested in theater. On May 14th, 1938 Karol Wojtyla graduated from high school. In October 1938, Karol Wojtyla began studying in the Department of Philosophy at the Jagiellonian University. On February 18th, 1941 after a long illness, his father died. Even with the outbreak of World War II, Karol Wojtyla received the opportunity to continue his studies. In the autumn of 1941, Karol and his friends founded the Theatre, which staged its first performance on November 1, 1941. Wojtyla’s parting with the theater was sudden in 1942, when he decided to study theology and entered the secret Metropolitan Seminary in Krakow, where on November 1st, 1946 he was ordained a priest. At the same time he continued his studies as Jagiellonian University. In the period from April 1945 to August 1946 Karol Wojtyla worked as an assistant at the university and conducted seminars on the history of dogma. On November 15th, Karol Wojtyla went to Paris, and then to Rome to continue his studies at the Angelicum University Instituto Internazionale. In 1958, Karol Wojtyla was appointed titular bishop of Ombrii, as well as auxiliary bishop of Krakow. While he was a bishop, Karol Wojtyla also attended the Second Vatican Council. On December 30, 1963, eighteen months after the death of his predecessor Archbishop Eugeniusz Baziak, Karol Wojtyla was appointed Archbishop of Krakow. After the death of John Paul I, during the second conclave in 1978, Wojtyla was elected pope and took the name John Paul II. The result of the selection was announced on October 16 at 4:16 pm. Karol Wojtyla died on April 2, 2005 in the Vatican.
