one thing that's not in the social doctrine of the church. here in washington, the pope will sit down with president obama, who has called him a transformative leader. on thursday, he will deliver a speech to congress, a papal first. >> i think the things we'll hear areñañ the poor, something about the environment. and also, something about migrants and refugees. >> reporter: the visit is an immense security challenge. large crowds expected in every city. but true to the humble nature of pope francis, this isn't just about vip meetings and large speeches. instead of dining with members of congress, he'll have lunch with homeless people, in a tent set up outside on the street. it's moments like that that makes francis so popular. for the first time in 20 years, a majority of american catholics say the church is in touch with their views. and nine in ten say they approve the direction francis is taking the church. phillip and reena, that direction has been a big shift from pope francis' predecessors.

3:06 am
a statement, as well. >> you mentioned tens of thousands of people that will be there today. a lot of preparation going on at the nation's capital. what's the feeling like, now that he's finally arrived? >> reporter: so much excitement has been buzzing in the capital for a couple of days. one security official said, it's like having an inauguration, over the course of a morning, an afternoon, and the next day and afternoon. inauguration after inauguration. the security presence is immense. the road closures are going to be stretching through many parts of the city today and tomorrow. in fact, people are being encouraged to stay home from work and commute -- work from home if they can. i'm keeping my daughter home from day care today and tomorrow because it's just not worth it to try to bring people down in vehicles. there's a local news site that had a headline, sums it all up. it just said, seriously, don't drive in washington while the pope is here. i think that point, hopefully, will get across to people.
