Four thousand miles. Hundreds of people. Four countries. Two Popes. One video.

World Youth Day will take place next July in Krakow, Poland. Although it's still nine months away, the Vatican is already encouraging young people to prepare for the trip. A new video from World Youth Day organizers to promote the event is just the latest move by the Vatican to draw attention to the event. Starring hundreds of young people in four different European countries, the video depicts a group traveling with the "Popeâ? on their way to Krakow.  It also features a short cameo from Pope Francis. Filming took place in Paris, Barcelona, Rome, the Vatican, and Poland. A variety of languages are spoken as the group picks up different people to bring with them to World Youth Day. The video has already received more than 50,000 views in the first few days after being released, and it has continued to go viral.  ATO YouTube VM -PR Up: JMB
