Massive tribute to the Pope

NORTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Pope Francis is part of a potential new world record, set right here in Philadelphia.

Monday morning, a massive mural featuring the Holy Father was unveiled in North Philadelphia.

It's on the walls of the new Saint Malachy School.

More than 27 hundred people, including Pope Francis helped paint it during the World Meeting of Families.

They worked on cloth panels that were then attached to the walls.

Organizers say the project is eligible for the Guinness World Record for "most Contributions to a Painting by numbers".
