father robert barron. maria is going to be taking a look at the role of women in the modern church. right now, we want to go down to st. peter's square. keir simmons, following the activity all morning long, good morning to you. >> reporter: this is always an historic day but the crowd pouring out here certainly have seen history in the making. some are them are still in the square watching the pope meet world leaders on the big spring, he having told them to respect the environment, think about the weak and the poor. once again this pope bringing his simple style to the most grand of ceremonies. catholics and the simply curious of every color and creed gathered for a ceremony stretching back thousands of years. 132 official delegations from around the world came, and
7:01 am
leaders of every faith. few religious celebrations as grand, or steeped in ritual as the installation of a pope in the catholic church. from early in the day, hundreds of thousands poured into the square. the pope choosing to greet them in an open jeep instead of the well-protected pope mobile. at one point stepping down, reaching out to children, the sick. the cheers of the faithful here, an audible embrace. then the 266th pope praying at the tomb of peter, leaders alongside him healing the divide 1,000 years old. here to witness history, vice president biden and royalty, a humble priest from south
7:02 am
america, his message, remember the poor. a communion shared by all, a day no one will forget. and in the last half hour, vice president biden, among world leaders, meeting the pope for the first time. and you can see from the flags, matt, there are ordinary people here from around the world, one particularly special moment was those 500 priests spreading out amongst the crowd to bring the communion, blessed by the new pope and the pope not just praying for people but asking people again to pray for him. >> keir simmons in st. peter's square thank you very much. the largest delegation, official delegation from argentina as you might expect. the president of that country and 19 others here at vatican city. maria shriver is here and robert barron. good morning to both of you. maria, let me start with you.
7:03 am
you listened to the homily. what did you think? >> i thought it was so inspiring. he talked about the concept of being a protector, he said all of us can protect the environment, can protect the poor, can protect our families. i thought it was meaningful particularly to not to mistake tenderness for weakness, not to mistake caring, those are strong virtues and he questioned what is real power, and real power authentic power is in service. >> i'm glad you said that about that message of don't mistake tenderness for weakness. father barron, this is a gentle man, a humble man. he's been called authentic especially over these last five or six days, let's be honest he doesn't, he's going to have to be a rather tough man to shake up this church in the way a lot of people want it shaken up. >> absolutely. he's a man of franciscan simplicity.
7:04 am
the clear indication was we need a pope who with clean things up, make personnel change, bring greater accountability, transparency, and make no mistake, they chose him partially for that reason. so he'll make some tough moves. >> we saw the scene where the new pope was surrounded by some members of the old guard church hierarchy. we should expect to see some of those people changing roles. >> i wouldn't be surprised at all. he didn't re-up all the heads of the curia offices, only in a provisional way. that's telling. he said you're in for the time being but i'll pray and reflect and make my own decision so i wouldn't be surprised if some disappear. >> maria he's 76 years old, older than some people expected a new pope to be. do you think he needs to make his mark and make those changes quickly? >> i think he'll make it in his own time. this is a jesuit. they're free thinkers and questions of dogma.
7:05 am
i think he'll do his own thing. this is a man you get -- you don't get a feeling of anxiousness from him. i get a feeling of great calmness, great reflection and strength. >> thanks for your time and input this morning. right now let's go back to savannah. we're following another major story at home the late winter storm making for a messy commute across the northeast this morning. the weather channel's jim cantore is in concord, new hampshire, this morning, good morning to you. >> reporter: schools are closed from massachusetts up to maine, an unprecedented eighth time in worcester, massachusetts, even some of the worst winters i can remember i've never seen schools closed eight times. auburn, maine, the snow is coming in, in a hurry here, some snowfall rates about an inch an hour. this is what we're going to see in maine, in new hampshire, in vermont, in massachusetts as well with some mix expected in the boston area and end to the precipitation in new york after three to four inches. let's look at the radar and get
7:06 am
you updated on the latest winter storm and the winter that doesn't seem to want to end here. precipitation we think is going to pretty much continue for a good part of the day right into the evening hours in through here and by the time all is said and done probably five to eight inches more in concord and eventually 8 to 12 more up into maine, some totals up around 18 inches. the storm is coming in, in two phases. we're seeing the coastal storm taking over so all of the holes in the precipitation field will fill in and the snow will come down in earnest through a part of the day. good idea to close schools here as new england prepares for another storm, two days before the start of spring. >> you took the words out of my mouth. two days before spring, but you'd never know it looking at your shot. jim cantore, thank you. natalie morales, good morning to you. >> good morning, everyone. a deadly explosion at an army depot in western nevada this morning. nbc's chief pentagon correspondent has the latest.
7:07 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is a tragic accident. u.s. military officials tell nbc news that at least seven u.s. marines were killed, at least seven others seriously wounded in that explosion during a live fire exercise at the army's hawthorne depot in western nevada. conflicting reports indicate that a 60-millimeter mortar round exploded as the marines loaded it into the firing tube. other reports indicate that the round may have exploded as the marines picked it up. four of the marines were killed instantly by the blast. three others died later of injuries. two were critically wounded and taken to a trauma center in reno, nevada. the others are being treated at a local hospital there in hawthorne, nevada. now, according to military officials, the marines killed and wounded are from the second marine division in camp lejeune on the east coast. this is all under investigation right now, according to marine corps officials.
7:08 am
but this is a grim reminder that these military operations are risky and dangerous whether they're in or out of a combat zone. natalie? >> jim, thanks so much. an arrest this morning in the 2002 murder of american journalist daniel pearl. pakistani officials confirmed the arrest of a former militant leader who they say took part in the kidnapping and killing of pearl 11 years ago in karachi. pearl's parents responded to the arrest saying they hope that justice will be served. a wave of violence this morning in baghdad killed more than 55 people within a single hour. the series of bombings targeted civilians at bus stops and small restaurants, wounding hundreds of people. this as today marks ten years since the u.s. bombardment of iraq. we'll have much more on that comings up. now to wall street. jackie, good morning. >> good morning, natalie. well, investors appear to be shrugging off worries off the
7:09 am
island nation of cyprus as its parliament is expected to vote on a popular new bailout deal today. the deal includes a one-time tax on bank deposits, and it's sparked concerns about the security of savings accounts across europe. natalie, back to you. >> all right, jackie deangelis, thanks. a new battle for new york city mayor michael bloomberg. the health crusader has set his sights on smokers, calling for shops to keep tobacco products out of sights for customers, putting them in drawers and cabinets instead. hillary clinton's newly announced position on gay marriage is fueling speculation she'll run for president in 2016. clinton said monday she supports same-sex marriage because, quote, gay rights are human rights. during the 2008 campaign, she maintained that she supported civil unions but not gay marriage. with a potential government shutdown looming later this month, the white house may have to cancel its annual easter egg roll. kristen welker has more. good morning. >> reporter: natalie, good
7:10 am
morning to you. the 135th annual easter egg roll is scheduled for april 1st. on friday, the white house sent out a memo to members of congress and other ticketholders warning that if there is a government shutdown, the event could be canceled. here's part of that memo. by using these tickets, guests are acknowledging that this event is subject to cancellation due to funding uncertainty surrounding the executive office of the president and other federal agencies. if canceled, the event will not be rescheduled. this comes on the heels of the white house cancelling tours here at 1600 pennsylvania avenue due to the sequester. those deep across the board spending cuts that congress failed to avert. white house officials say they are not expecting the easter egg roll to be canceled. they are planning to move forward with it as planned because they are not expecting a government shutdown. they are expecting, by the way, 35,000 people at the easter egg roll. natalie? >> all right, kristen welker.
7:11 am
al roker looks forward to that event every year. let's hope they can get it together. thank you. 7:13 right now. back to savannah and dylan. >> how can we talk about easter when there's snow on the ground? >> with spring starting tomorrow, you think enough already with the snow. but no. >> the groundhog needs to be fired. >> the one year he says spring is going to come early. forget about it. >> he got it wrong. >> he got it way wrong. with the snow coming down in the northeast, there's another storm in the west. you think you're past it at this point in the year, but more snow is going to call, especially across upstate new york through central and northern new england too. this is a huge storm. we had severe weather associated with it down across the southeast with wind damage and possible tornadoes. hail as well. also, a lot of heavy rain down into alabama. now, in the northeast, it doesn't look like much across seattle right now, but this is going to be another storm system
7:12 am
that brings in perhaps several inches of rain. there is the chance we could see some avalanches because of the weight on the snow out that way. we'll get a check of your local forecast right after this message. the 2013 c-class coupe. ♪ starting at $37,800. ♪ good tuesday morning to you. 7:14. we have showers on the way, but not until 4:00 or 5:00 this evening. and light, from san jose to santa rosa. the showers are coming in so

late, we'll be able to reach levels close to yesterday. 70 degrees for gilroy. and 69 in san francisco. looking good until thursday. then, we're going to clear you out. forecast. savannah? all right, dylan. thank you. voting is under way this morning for a special election for south carolina's first open congressional district seat. former governor mark sanford one of the names on the ballot after he looks for a comeback. kelly o'donnell is in charleston for us. kelly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. people here say they've been overwhelmed by the number of candidates, many swamping the local tv stations with campaign ads. much of the attention has been on the former governor after his public affair, and he's now seeking political redemption. a chance for an unlikely comeback. >> how are you, mark sanford, good to see you. >> reporter: former south carolina governor mark sanford
7:14 am
is up against 15 fellow republicans running for congress. >> i feel like i'm supposed to be crawling back on to this larger playing field that i had stepped away from for a couple years and i've been blown away by the warmth and graciousness of the reception. >> reporter: that despite his spectacular fall from grace in 2009. sanford had disappeared, having an affair in argentina. now engaged, he says his fiance tries to stay far from the spotlight. >> you couldn't help but be a private person and to have been able to avoid your television cameras and many others over the last four years. >> reporter: his ex-wife, jenny, turned down his request to help on this campaign. >> i said well still love to have you involved any way that you'd like, because you know, she is an incredibly intelligent woman and knows campaigns and knows elections very, very well. >> reporter: among several local officials running is larry gruenz.
7:15 am
>> i'm someone to be trusted to get the job down. >> reporter: billionaire ted turner's son, teddy, is a candidate. and in the democratic primary, the sister of comedy star stephen colbert, businesswoman elizabeth colbert bush. >> i will talk to each other and listen. >> reporter: because there are so many candidates, a runoff is expected between the top two republicans. today is really a test. south carolinians are forgiving of sanford's past the question is will they vote for him again. >> we'll know by the end of today. kelly o'donnell in charleston thank you. today marks the tenth anniversary of the beginning of the war in iraq, a bombardment dubbed shock and awe. richard engel covered it from the start, he's in jerusale sta. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah.
7:16 am
we are in jerusalem where president obama tomorrow will begin a visit to boost relations with israel, the palestinian authority, and jordan. for the united states, the war in iraq began ten years ago, but for iraqis, it never really ended. it began on a clear night, with military precision, as guided bombs brought shock and awe to baghdad. u.s. troops charged up through the desert, and soon baghdad was falling. iraq's oil money was supposed to pay for the war. it didn't work out that way. from now on, the war set its own agenda, an insurgency erupted that became a religious civil war. sunnis versus shiites, americans now stuck battling to keep the two sides from killing each other, and u.s. forces. iraqis accuse the united states of invading to find weapons of mass destruction that were never
7:17 am
there, and destroying a delicate religious balance. the white house stopped claiming all was well in iraq, and thousands more troops surged. the violence dropped, and americans left, nine years, almost 4,500 troops killed, 32,000 wounded, 130,000 iraqi civilians killed. the cost, according to a new study, nearly $2 trillion. >> what adds up over time or the veterans care costs with the way the economic costs sort of pile up and ripple through the decades. >> reporter: so what was accomplished? saddam hussein was removed and democratic elections were held. they got freedom, but they still don't have security. the car bombings are back, the sunni/shiite rivalry has returned. still, many officials from the busch administration say invading iraq was even in hindsight worth it. >> there are always things in a
7:18 am
big, complex operation like a war one looks back on and thinks should have been done better, should have been done differently but i think that the fundamental decision that the president made to remove saddam was sound. >> reporter: ten years later, iraq has yet to recover from the war, neither have many american veterans and their family, a war that consumed and changed our nation's foreign policy, but that few americans talk about anymore. according to a study, americans will continue to spend billions of dollars a year to care for iraq veterans. savannah? >> richard engel thank you very much. coming up more from the vatican where pope francis shook hands with vice president joe biden. matt is there with maria shriver. first this is "today" on nbc.

[ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes.
7:22 am
do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit

7:29 am
vonn take to facebook to announce their relationship to the world. we'll get into that story. matt, back to you. >> all right, savannah, thank you very much. we'll begin this half hour about what the role for women holds in the church. maria, welcome back, good to have you here. >> thank you so much, matt. people all over the world are incredibly excited as we know about this pope and no group is more hopeful than catholic women. catholic women and nuns in particular have long run the parish schools, the hospitals and they have cared for the sick and the poor, but as we all know, they cannot be ordained, they cannot say mass and they cannot vote for the pope. now millions of women think it's time for the hierarchy of this church to open its eyes to the reality of what women can and should be allowed to do. >> the woman's issue is a big one because they feel that they
7:30 am
are made invisible by the church. >> reporter: sister joan chidesters aa benedict and nun from erie, pennsylvania. >> i really want those questions of ordination, of inclusiveness, i want them to be very high on the church agenda. we can't ignore them much longer. >> reporter: the call for healing and unity resonates for many who are hoping this pope has the courage to reform the church, from the inside out, and include many who have felt marginalized. >> i have a staff of mostly catholics, only two actually practice, a number of them have gone to some of the christian churches. >> reporter: sister jennifer gaeida is a nun who works with the poor in los angeles. >> the christian churches meet their social needs, their real needs and i think the catholic church has become too much about maintaining the structure. >> reporter: america is a deeply spiritual nation and many who
7:31 am
work in the field say the church better open up or risk losing its faithful. mary anne williamson and rabbi david volpe are on the front lines. everybody is watching this transition in robe with bate eb how will they handle women, divorced catholics, gays, are you hearing about people talking about that in your pews as well? >> anybody who has done any work in the developing world knows the catholic church does remarkable things but you don't want to see the systemic violation of what the church stands for, people crying out and not being heard. >> what do you think the giant evan yellical churches have been able to do that the catholic church has not been able to do? >> they talk about god's action and principles in people's lives. >> reporter: already pope francis' emphasis on simplicity, poverty and forgiveness seems to resonate with people, hungry for
7:32 am
leadership and change. what is your best dream for what the church can become? >> that there would be women in government -- governance of the church. >> reporter: while much of the world waits to see what pope francis does, one woman who already works in the vatican believes all of us would do best to worry less about defined roles. sister judith zoberlin is one of the highest ranking women at the vatican. do you think that people miss the point when they're saying women aren't equal unless they're ordained? >> why should i have to take on a man's role in order to be a good woman. >> in the united states we often talk about the glass ceiling for women professionally. is there a stained glass ceiling? >> i don't see a ceiling. i see trying to become more and more who i am as a woman, as a religious, as a person dedicated to the church in that way, and i don't see that there's a ceiling on that.
7:33 am
>> i love that she said she doesn't see that there's a ceiling. reminded me of a comment my dad made many years ago when he was in alzheimer's, and he said to me if you want to get eternal, you got to go internal. >> well said. cardinal timothy dolan, your imminence, great to see you. >> maria your dad was a great man and wise man. >> very involved in the church. >> do they have reason to be hopeful? >> we all have reason to be hopeful with pope francis, my hope is on steroids after that magnificent mass and hearing him preach and i wonder, somebody in your interview hinted at it, that the new pope can't just be in to maintaining structures. he's got to unleash the energy that was given us by jesus and the holy spirit and i wonder if he's given us a new interpretive key in his homily. he spoke, i don't know if you had the advantage of hearing, of the translation, he spoke of tender love, tender love.
7:34 am
now women are pros when it comes to tender love, and he spoke for st. joseph loving jesus and mary, but then he said this tender love has to go to creation, to god's creatures and especially to those who are most fragile, especially to those who are poor and struggling and feel alienated. women are pros when it comes to tender love. will they have a more accented role in his papacy? i wouldn't doubt it. >> he talked about mercy over these last several days. >> yes. >> he talked about forgiveness and says "we, too i think are these people who on the one hand want to listen to jesus but other times we like to beat up on others." it's your job to take this message back home and preach this to the people of the archdiocese of new york. how will you convey that message? >> he's used these days since his election as a great classroom, and i think all of us today, the cardinals that are leaving, are just regenerated. it's been like a retreat so we
7:35 am
go home filled with hope, filled with zeal, filled with inspiration, detecting a simplicity, a sincerity, a willingness to speak about the raw, simple truths of the gospel. did you hear him today, there wasn't anything cerebral about it. he could have given that homily to fourth graders but yet it was so moving and so beautiful. >> there is a tough job ahead. he is going to look at some s d investigation into the vatican scandal. some things are not going to be good for the church, they'll be hurtful. do you want him to speak about what's in the report openly and publicly? >> i think it would be good. there's nobody who would have sat through the congregations that we cardinals had before the conclave without knowing that the college of cardinals unanimously wants an honesty, a candor, a sincerity, sense of transparency. he heard that and i think he's going to do it.
7:36 am
that was his style as archbishop of buenos aires. the first time he was white in the conclave, we applauded, he looked and shrugged and said now what have i gotten myself into. in other words he's saying here's what i am, i can't be anyone else and be with me. >> the poll is americans want this pope to clean up the church and to bring it back together. >> yes, and it's even better than that. catholics indeed the whole world, they want the church to work. they want this pope to be successful. he'll ride on that crest, and i think we got a winner. >> cardinal timothy dolan -- >> thanks, good to be with you and maria. i look forward to seeing you later. >> more from the vatican in a little while, for now on the weather here is dylan dreyer. >> the rain is letting up a little bit here in new york city but we've got another storm system that's moving into the great lakes, it's more of a lake-effect type system with

8:18 am
we've forgotten the health of the human brain is as important as anything else. so as tom has looked now at deep brain stimulation for parkinson's and alzheimer's, there's new research looking to treat obsessive compulsive disorder, obesity and anorexia. i think this is the next big frontier. >> staying on alzheimer's for a moment it appears it is most effective for those who have the early onset of the disease. >> there are two times, two types, early onset people in their 50s and 60s, which is heartbreaking and the one we're more accustomed to when people are in their 80s. the real problem is that we don't have any great drugs in the pipeline and we're just figuring out now genetics, trauma, medicines, the kinds of things that might hurt a brain earlier in life, and then might pre-dispose it to alzheimer's and frankly figuring out early alzheimer's from late alzheimer's, but if we don't have good drugs in the pipeline,
8:19 am
but we do have some pretty cool science, the question is can you stimulate the brain in ways that 20 years ago we would have never even considered, and that's what makes this so exciting. >> it's wonderful to get a little bit of hope. dr. nancy, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> you bet. 8:21 rks we send it over to natalie. the new season of nbc's "all-star celebrity apprentice" is getting started. we're seeing a lot of drama in the board room. this week it centered around la toya jackson and oma rosa and oma rosa lived to fight another day. >> it is a pretty easy joyce. i hate to do it la toya. you made a terrible choice when you didn't bring back ama rosa. because i think i would have fired ama rosa. la toya, you're fired. >> she joins us now, la toya good morning to you. >> good morning, how are you this morning in. >> i'm fine, by all accounts including mr. donald trump you made a major boo-boo when you

[ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring.
