Little Karol had a strong and cordial
bond with his father. His father raised
him in a big discipline, and at the same
time he was his friend.
As a bishop and cardinal, he was
still meeting with his schoolmates
and, being a pope, invited them
to Rome and Castel Gandolfo.
Karol developed his acting talent,
playing in performances in the school,
parish and Amateur Theatre
of Mieczysław Kotlarczyk.
Lolek among sports disciplines especially liked football.
His 14-year-old brother Edmund played in a football
team and took him to matches.
