House of Jan Tyranowski
ul. Różana 11
It was in this house that the members of the Living Rosary, who the future pope joined in 1940-1944, gathered. It was also here that he met Jan Tyranowski, who exerted a great influence on the then student of Polish Studies.
John Paul II reminisced: "with Jan assisting, I was introduced into a new world, whose existence I had never been aware of before." (quoted from: John Paul II, Autobiografia, Wydawnictwo Literackie, Kraków 2005)
A civil servant by education, Tyranowski chose to live the life of a tailor. A man of huge faith, who, having experienced a religious revival, devoted himself to the spreading of the teaching of Christianity by gathering around himself a group of young people. The mortal remains of Jan Tyranowski are buried in the Church of the Salesians of Don Bosco in Kraków's district of Dębniki. In 1997, the beatification process of Jan Tyranowski began. The documentation was completed in 2000, and passed to the Vatican Congregation for the Causes of Saints.
