The Pope’s different faces

Andrzej Jawień, A.J., Stanisław Andrzej Gruda, Piotr Jasień – what do these names have to do with Karol Wojtyła? Karol was a young priest, but also a poet and a playwright. He wrote often, but kept his writings in a drawer and published them rarely under the selected pseudonyms.

Andrzej Jawień, A.J., Stanisław Andrzej Gruda, Piotr Jasień – what do these names have to do with Karol Wojtyła? Karol was a young priest, but also a poet and a playwright. He wrote often, but kept his writings in a drawer and published them rarely under the selected pseudonyms.
Marek Skwarnicki wrote initially in the preface to Poezje, dramaty i szkice [Poems, Dramas and Literary Sketches] (Kraków 2004) that the novel Niebo w płomieniach [Sky on Fire], written by Jan Parandowski, with Jawień as the main character, was the source of his first assumed name.
Later it was discovered that Jawień was the family name of one of the parishioners of Niegowić, where Karol Wojtyła performed pastoral ministry as a vicar after his ordination.
Stanisław Andrzej Gruda appeared in Karol Wojtyła’s cardinal period when he handed over a manuscript of Promienowanie ojcostwa [The Radiation of Fatherhood] to the Znak Publishing House.

After he was elected pope, his writings appeared in print and were translated into numerous languages; however, he himself remained silent as a poet for the next twenty four years. In 2003 he finally published Tryptyk rzymski [Roman Triptych, Meditations].

Karol Wojtyła’s sneakers

Among the memorabilia of John Paul II held in the museums in Małopolska items related to sport and hiking make up a large group. These are, among others: skis, mountain boots, as well as the presented inconspicuous sneakers. It seems that Karol Wojtyła particularly liked this light type of footwear. It is associated with an anecdote which says that on the 4th of July 1958, the future Pope summoned by Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński, interrupted his kayaking trip and went to the curia, where he stood before the cardinal... in old, torn up sneakers. As it turned out, the Primate of the Millennium called Wojtyła to give him a letter from Pope Pius II, who appointed Karol Wojtyła as the auxiliary bishop of Kraków. However, these were not the sneakers kept in the museum of Holy Father John Paul II Family Home in Wadowice. These are the shoes of the Italian company Superga and they were made after 1962 at the earliest. At that time, the brand’s logo was changed to the one that can be seen on the soles of the shoes. It may be inferred that the young bishop Wojtyła bought this pair of sneakers in Italy – perhaps in 1967 when he was appointed as a cardinal, or in 1976 when he was invited by Pope Paul VI to lead the retreat in Rome. In 1958, Karol Wojtyła probably still wore cheap Polish sneakers.
