A nationally recognized advocate for the homeless is just one of the many of local people who are in Washington, D.C. for Pope Francis' first stop on his trip to the United States.

Sister Mary Scullion, of Philadelphia's Project HOME, was personally invited by the White House to be among 1,000 guests on the South Lawn to greet the pope Wednesday morning.

She spoke to Rick Williams and Monica Malpass, calling her invitation a "great honor," adding she is "excited" and "grateful."
