Airport prepares for pope's arrival

Pope Francis is due to arrive at Philadelphia International Airport Saturday morning. 

The Bishop Shanahan High School marching band is ready to welcome him. It plans to play the theme song from "Rocky" as the pope walks off the plane.  

Chuck Keating, the band director, said he takes joy from seeing the excitement on his students' faces.

"I never thought in my whole life I'd have this opportunity," Keating said. "Especially greeting him as he's coming in, it's incredible."

His family -- mother Johanna; wife Kristin; daughter Katie,13; and twin sons Chris and Michael, 10 -- joined him at the airport from their home in Elverson Borough, Chester County.

Michael has cerebral palsy and the family hopes Pope Francis would bless him. 

"That's my wish," Kristin Keating said. But she said just being in the pope's presence is enough.

"We've been so blessed with Michael," she said. "I really feel Michael has already been blessed."

On Michael's lap sat a small purple change purse filed with rosary beads for the pope to bless, if he gets a chance.
