Blessed Rafał Chyliński (†1741) was a Polish Roman Catholic priest and a professed member of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual. He first served as a soldier but decided to become a priest instead and so entered the Franciscans and made his profession prior to ordination. He also became known for his simplistic preaching and for his generous outreach to the poor through the distribution of clothing and food. His beatification was celebrated on 9 June 1991 in the capital of Warsaw on the occasion of Pope John Paul II visiting the nation. His Feast day is celebrated on December 2.
