sacred room behind the altar. he will get ready for the service there assisted by the master of ceremonies who travels with him. >> basically what he will do is what every priest does, that is to prepare himself prayerfully for the celebration of mass and after mass is over, he will return to the same sacristy to di vest and get ready for his next stop. >> reporter: and in the early hours of the pope's arrival here to philadelphia, there will be a lot of focus and attention on saint peter and paul behind me, the mother church if you will. coming up in the next hour, i'm working on a story about what the parishioners of the parish have been doing for the past year to prepare for this momentous occasion. >> katie, thank you. breaking news from overnight, a major magnitude 8.3 earthquake struck off the coast of chili.

these tapes, watch a fully formed fetus on the table. its heart beating, its legs kick. while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. this is about the character of our nation and if we will not stand up and force president obama to veto this bill, shame on us. >> planned parenthood has come under attack for videos that surfaced over the summer. leaders were discussing the sale and ice of fetal tissue from late term and partial birth abortion, coming up, we will have more from the debate, including what new jersey governor chris christie had to say. . hang today, the superintendent of camden public schools will hear from parents about the challenges they face in enrolling their children. the meeting begins at 5:00 p.m. at new life ministries. parents need to navigate 17 different applications and

yeah, pretty amazing week out here. a lot of sunshine, warm. humidity is down. not a whole lot of wind. that's creating the only problem for the air quality alert for the area during the day today. 66 degrees in philadelphia. 50s, you can see in many of the suburbs. of course, it's going to warm up very quickly as we go through the rest of the day. we got dry air all across the region. nothing more than high thin clouds. the one area we will be watching over the next several days is way down through the south. any moisture from that might take five, six days to get up here. but that's what we are focusing on, because as we go through the rest of the week into saturday, you really don't see anything in the way of precipitationings anywhere close by. so it really is an amazing forecast that we have here.
for the rest of the day, we see a lot of sunshine, high temperature well above average, still not very humid. then for the rest of the seven-day period, it's starting off again on the warm side, low humidity. so that's still pretty nice. even on saturday, it's fairly warm, sunday we start cooling down a bit. some clouds come in. a slight shower sunday night. temperatures next week come in much colder and below average. construction typically is the issue out there right now. >> let's check 95 see what's happening there. jessica. >> i said it already. we have ongoing construction on i-95, tracy, this morning, which we are watching actively right now. it's approaching the blue route on the northbound side of 95. so you can see, we do have lane
restrictions there. traffic moving along nicely, right by the scene. so right now we are not dealing a lot in terms of traffic and volume, so for right now, it's something to watch out for. also, watch out for lane restrictions on the 42 freeway in new jersey on the southbound side heading towards philadelphia right now which is definitely at least a good. once rush hour gets under way later on in the morning. right around 355, three right-hand lanes closed. 6r7b89s it's 4:41. honoring some american heroes. >> we will tell you why these men who this warted a train attract in france will be making a trip to washington today. >> i am extremely honored that he's calling me and that i'm speaking to him. >> except elton john was not
here in vineland, new jersey, home of progresso, we love all kinds of chicken soups... but just one kind of chicken. it's white breast meat chicken every time. because white breast meat chicken releases its flavor into the broth and absorbs more flavor from it. and in vineland, it's all about flavor so if you're not going to make your own chicken soup tonight, do what we do...make it progresso.
